World in Gall

As I look at the world in gall,
intolerant of its diversity,
estranged from one another,
alienated from the world around them,
fearful of their ambitions,
ignoring all responsibilities,
trembliing at truth's presence,
trying to buy love,
thinking they inherit virtue,
Ignorant of their prejudicess,
things look hopeless,
as reason is overlooked once again,
Alas, I look in the eyes of my son.
And as my forefathers have done before,
I pass hope on with him...
