The Human Species

Turn to the wilderness
A harbour to the soul
Cognizant of predators
Searching for a meal
Uninhibited by conscience
Justifying their prey
Your heart a mere casualty
To their unscrupulous way
But do not choose to hide here
As people are not all the same
Blood thirsty carnivores
Out for a piece of your flesh
Only a sector of the human species
Look to the loving and the kind
Another sector of the human species
For examples exist
To remind you of great humankind
