Someone Once Said …

Someone once said learn from your mistakes
Yet they all did errors over and over again
Someone said to repent for your sins
Yet we all never agreed
Someone once said to love
Yet we carry hate in our hearts
Like weapons against those who love
Someone once said to forgiv
Yet we run after revenge, all cruel and pitiless
Someone once said never to give up
Yet we cry over failures again and again
Someone once said to make others your priority
Yet we all grab to satiate our lust
Never ending, never satisfying
Someone once said and only said
The words written remained forever
But we went forward and tried to be clever
Reeped our rewards with the bitter harvest
A mark of treachery over our crest.
