More An Experiment

How can so many choose to walk in darkness,
With so much that is revealed?
How can so many not wake up from conflicts...
Without a thought to think or anything to feel?
Am I observing humanity...
With abilities to correct and reflect?
Are we among the brightest on Earth...
Above all animals, objects and insects?
If we are living the lives we can at our very best...
Something about this is more an experiment,
And failure is the result of this test!

ah...but everyones best are not equal. And best is sometimes too much effort and doesn't bring the pleasure so many are after. Nice write.
