Borrowed thoughts

Your relentless war
killing, demolishing
anything, anyone
you feel threatened with...
and go on
with your borrowed thoughts.

Look inwards into your fears
perhaps you will find
you do not see in the chaos
of your borrowed thoughts.

Look inside, what have you done
to others in the name of fears
or are those your gods 
or their denomination -
a creation of your borrowed thoughts.

Peep within before it is too late
the wars you continue to wage
will turn around one day
when people will stand against what they shouldn't tolerate
anyway: your borrowed thoughts.

Break open the web now
right now.

Watch the regurgitating fears 
see the absurdity
the surreality
of your being
You: a product of borrowed thoughts.

(To those who are made to hate and fear others, across the world.
