Not Enough

I didn’t know it then
I didn’t know that love
Could ever run dry
Perhaps through childish eyes
This world was worth it
Though as I learn
Nothing is ever as it seems

For a moment
I could feel innocence die
As each soul becomes unclean
To live a life free from taint
Did not exist anymore
I was consumed by disillusionment
I lost myself in guilt
My downfall is I care too much
Think too much for things
That will never resolve
As long as we breathe
This is the course of action
A way to inevitable destruction

Ask the battered woman if she believes
Or the son being violated every night
Or if the prayers of those in war torn nations
Ever reach the ear of an absent Father
It’s too selfish, a slap in the face
To ask if they really believe in sanctity
No they are cocooned in their own prisons
Even without hellish fire
You can feel the embers
In the dark hearts of man
Call me jaded
My faith is free
Free to scatter
Dust particles to the wind
I had believed too much
And the fall is that much longer
All because I refused to look away
Everything consumed
In a crimson so dark
It’s almost black
That’s the day when love
Wasn’t enough

(Which is the perspective I was considering), rather than 'ethical' perspective, 'harm' depends on the point of view. A lion can be seen as 'harming' the antelope or as doing something that is good for the ecosystem as…"
