No rhyme or reason for these acts

No rhyme or reason for these acts

of brutality that stops us in our tracks,

an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind

as Gandhi once defined and prophecised.

No rhyme or reason for these acts

for exploiting our planet and destroying it,

it’s the only place we can inhabit

the only place for us to exist.

No rhyme or reason for these acts

are you more clever than we think and just acting dumb,

do you know something that we don’t know

or are you just a disaster that’s ready to blow,

who knows?

  1. “We’ve said no to war, nobody listens, nobody hears
    Above all children of earth, borders are only an illusion
    One only planet, a mankind with thousand facets
    A mankind with thousand colours, a mankind which is dying in its flesh
    We’ve said no to war, no to famine, no to fear of the Other
    No to obedience to hierarchy when it gives words of death
    From south to north, what do we honour? What are our values?
    The other is your mirror, hitting your reflection is hitting yourself
    And breaking it is more than 7 years of curse.”
    -Keny Arkana L’Histoire se Répète (History Repeats Itself)
