Sonnet #13

by Gavin M Roy

society sickens me in a way
that i can not fully understand.
maybe it's the way
we're conditioned to label and brand.

why is it that when one
is solely with another
the differences will sum
but they can get along together?

the trouble is that in groups
all without something menial in common
the differences tend to sum
to a level that is overly common.

and that is to hate and to fight
to simply forget wrong from right.

ahh.. the tug of war between our sense of wrong and right and our commitment to RELATIONSHIPS... they ARE messy, aren't they? But full humanity cannot be experienced without them.
