When Everything is A Human Right, Nothing is

We speak about rights
but frowns on its responsibilities
We seek social change
but are unwilling to change ourselves
We want freedom
But forget it is not absolute
We dream of a peaceful world
but yearns for instruments of war
We decry the status quo
but supplements its agency
We want God to intervene
but our desires are erasing His values
Sadly, most would say it is controversial
Courageously, I would say it is the truth
The truth where:
when everything is a human right
nothing is!
