A Hell for Me

A hell for me and all that be,    
Just like me or us  
Not killers, not rapists  
Not abusers of women and children but  
Common sinners of the everyday variety  
Sinners with false righteousness burning within  
Filling their minds with prejudices  
For all those thought to be  
Inferior, judgmental or outcasts somehow  
We judge indiscriminately    
For the fears in our own hearts  
Fear of the judgmental stares  
The soft whispering and taunting laughs  
We assume to be focused on us  
Paranoia softly whispering in our ears  
Pillow talk of the self-conscious and fractured  
We are not murderers of the flesh  
But we still kill  
We kill without abandon in our minds  
Vindictive to all those whom disagree  
With our thoughts and spirit  
The character dies first  
We find the flaws and attack it  
Until in our eyes it is dead  
We murder their convictions  
Convinced they have ulterior motives  
That we believe to be selfish in origin  
Once we have picked them apart and    
Torn them down  
We murder them in our minds because  
We are able to and    
Likely to get away with it  
Affliction of the human condition  
A Hell for me and all that be  
Common sinners just like us  
Let us pray that  
“Dante’s Inferno,” is real and  
We will not all be flung  
Into the same inferno together
