Time Capsule / Black Box
Please forgive us.
We did not mean the harm.
Yet we saw it and turned our heads; our backs.
If we can’t see it, it’s not there.
What we don’t know can’t hurt us.
So we’ll stop learning and forget.
Ignorance is bliss.
But bliss is the sedative before brain death
And brain death leads to full death.
Don’t forgive us.
If you’re there.
If anyone is left.
We did know.
And knowledge is power.
And power is obligation.
And we neglected it.
It was our watch and we shirked it.
Fear not the evil man,
But the good man who sees evil being done
And does nothing to stop it.
I saw it.
I did what I could.
But did I?
If you survived,
You deserve so much better.
Forgive us, Dear Reader.
We failed you.
