Passing by the street,
Saw a mob gathered,
Heard a helpless cry, another violent rage,
Saw an old ‘human’ man being ruthlessly beaten up,
By another ‘inhuman’ human with a stick,
Hands itching to go snatch that stick,
My mind screaming to the rest of the crowd, “GO DO SOMETHING!!!”,
But they stood still, as if,
Witnessing a free Broadway show,
My mind got split into 2 parts:
Part 1:”why mess with something which isn’t your business?
Forget it and walk away”,
Part 2:”go do something can’t just walk away like that as if u dint see anything!”
I bet every ‘human’ mind standing there would be going through the same mind war,
After a mind blogging battle part 2 succumbed to part 1,
I shamelessly put my head down and walked ahead.
All the while I couldn’t help stop being guilty,
All of a sudden
This shop with an amazing sale comes right up,
Memories of the past 10 minutes instantly erased,
I went in,
Shopped, shopped and shopped,
With a fresh stalk filled in my mind,
Constantly thinking of the purchase my arms now carrying,
And then suddenly out of nowhere part 1 striked,
“What must have happened to that old man?”
Part 2:”who cares? Someone must have done something…umm maybe nothing.
Anyway you have come a long way from there. who wants to walk all the way back?
plus you have your new purchase to flaunt.quick,go!”.
I turned away, pushed everything at the back of my mind, shutting the doors of ‘part 1’.
And that day,
I not only walked away from that helpless old man..his merciless assassinator..
Those mind-battling statue-still audience..
But from ‘humanity’……
