Holding the mirror up

We have stuffed our lives with busyness

our houses with crap

our bodies with junk

our minds with entertainment

our hearts with information

our spirits with fear

While emptying

our spirits of love

our hearts of compassion

our minds of truth

our bodies of life

our houses of charity

our lives of rest.

We are connected but lonely

Informed but ignorant

Comfortable but restless

Violent but cowards

Right but hypocrites

Alive but dead

Loud but dumb

Watchers but blind

Tuned in but shut off

Always eating but never satisfied

Christian but Christless

Atheist but gods

Aware but apathetic

Alive but deadly

Speaking truth but living a lie.
