not poetry

i believe
it isn’t love
it isn’t bad intent
but it is full of the self

it wasn’t intended to hurt anyone
or to rule over anyone
greed
and self-preservation
brought fear
and bred anger

it made you do things
and destroy others
enough to bring down
families

you will never know
the terrible consequences
of what you perpetuate
as long as you get
what you want
everything is collateral damage

i can believe
there were no ill
intents
only ill
effects
and

they will come for you.
