Divorce emotions. Upside down world.

The person that believed in people now understands people.  The person that saw love in everyone now sees evil lurking.  The person that thought the best of strangers is now guessing.  The person that saw joy in life now sees suffering. The person that thought freedom of speech reigned now sees freedom ending.  The person that believed in country now wonders what soldiers still fight for. The person that looked up to authority now sees petty politics.  The person that honored the fallen realizes now their lives were lost in vain. The person that believed in good now is victimized by corruption.

The person that wasted hours now can’t find enough time to help others.  The person that was captivated by themselves now realizes giving up yourself is the only way.  The person that ignored devastating stories now prays for suffering citizens.  The person that filled their own stomach now feeds the hungry.  The person that cried out in pain now understands what embracing pain does.  The person that loved now sees love does not conquer all.  The person that trusted now sees the eternal father is the only one worthy of trust.

The person saw things right-side up now sees things upside down.
