Immersed in violence

We seek peace

Never considering

That violence is our birthright

It is the one constant

At every level of existence

Universal, as galaxies swirl

Planets collide

Stars explode

Global, as weather and climate

Tear gaping holes

In any plans for the future

Individual, as we rip ourselves

Out of the womb

Blood and gore

Our first contribution

Cellular, atomic, subatomic

Nature and instinct

Predators and prey

Survival requires death

Order inevitably reverts to chaos
