Characters Flawed

A world apart from someone’s pain,
we hide behind the walls we’ve built
and hope the heartache we sustain
won’t obfuscate our righteous path.
We speak of otherworldly gain
yet put no actions with those words.
Although the piety we feign
protects us from a rising guilt,
our scorn for humankind is plain.
