You Tell Me

This a tragedy and we should let the healing begin
You say "we must learn to love and tolerate each other"
You asked us to be honest and to do unto others what we wish to have done unto us"
How could we make sense of this tragedy if we can't even feel our hearts beating underneath this heavy armor?
How can we start the healing process if we can't even begin to understand the nature of our wounds or what caused them?
How can we tolerate one another if we fear our differences and hate ourselves for faking kindness?
How can we love each other when we're too busy procuring a brighter future for ourselves and failing at it?
How can we prove our honesty in an empty room?
How can I do unto you what you have done unto me without killing you?
