AFFLICTION

Tammera

Sacramento, United States

Artist's Description

Sometimes when the world becomes overwhelming
There are those who have trouble keeping balance

They feel as if they are melding into the walls
And becomming a part of nothingness
A state of being that overwhelms…

My thinking is more empathy is needed
More affection, More attention
More listening, More brotherhood

Less greed, Less hatred
Less lies, Less manipulations
Less anger, Less revenge

Tolerance would be a good thing too…
