if i could kill yesterday


no, not kill…un-birth it,
yesterday, so
i wouldn’t have to knowingly know

there’s a kind of hurt
all over the world
all over the world

and it’s a powerful machine
of human flesh
“Ain’t gonna take it anymore!”
“Can you hear us now?”

one half hour till morning
the odor is not fading
nor the resolve

if i could kill yesterday i would not
somewhere somebodies learned
if not only
human evolution in time
for Compassion

if we ever needed you
we need you now
