Zombies

Zombies

We’re all damned

zombies.

We don’t need a virus,

an outside force or

extenuating circumstances.

We choose it for ourselves,

embrace the disease

turn off our humanity

follow an unknown path

in a mindless herd.

We don’t think.

We don’t feel.

We don’t know we’re zombies.

When did this unknown virus

dig its way into our souls?

Did we not feel it when it

began to slip from us?

When did we stop noticing

our neighbors?

Though we walk beside them

all heading in the same direction

we do not see them

do not hear them

do not care they’re alive

because we’re not living.

What will restart our hearts

stir our souls

bring us new life?

When will we stop – and

see

feel

know

connect

live?
