Exceptional

alexa-mazzarello-196473
Buried under the dearth of pain
Lies, suffering, hatred, and loss
We humans as a species 
we continue to survive.

Every day we overcome
the fear of discrimination,
misogyny ,
clash of the religions, morals, and values
and still, we continue to survive

All the bloodthirst and the violence
the numbness which the soul goes through
the dried trail of tears
and a hopeless and dim humanity
and still, we continue to survive

Living under the false pretense
surrounded by all the hatred
cheating and the betrayal 
and love being lost in the rampant chaos
and still, we continue to survive

Compassion and threadbare empathy
lost all its meaning
False hopes and lip sympathy
continue to reign 
and still, we continue to survive

Riding the food chain
and dominating the world 
Threatening and corrupting the nature
sucking the nature till it dries up
and still we continue to survive

We humans.
Aren't we exceptional?
