The soul-wrenching, silent state of distress of the afflicted
That throughout the world, at any given moment, someone is being:

Molested, beaten, tortured,
Ridiculed, humiliated, persecuted,
Burned out, drugged out, bombed out,
Starved, dehumanized, or demoralized;

That nature is being:

Stripped, poisoned, raped,
Used to excess, pushed to extinction, cast roughly aside,
Buried, burned, and bled to death;

That the world suffers from:

Over-indulgence, self-righteousness, ignorance,
Fear of the unknown, fear of the familiar, and fear of itself;

And, that enduring, positive change of the status quo is:

Yes, impossible.
