The ebb and flow of progress 

The ebb and flow of progress 

We come so far, and snap back so fast. Will we ever defeat humanity’s ugliest elements? Will the brutally broken hearts heal? Perhaps our lust for power, domination and cruel madness satiated, and others allowed the simple grace of existence. 

I dream of a better world. Free of cruelty, rage and brutality. I don’t see the path there. I have faith it exists, though, so must continue to search. Such is the doom of the hopeful.
