Why people will never change

No matter how they trust God, People that I know, are hurting me.
They don't listen, and create suffering.

is my truth.

I am trying to be good, but they are too strong.
Their aggression is limitless.
For them hurting others is probably, just usual.

I try to not be like them.
But I do not know how to protect myself.
And I can't fight with them.

They are just too strong.

I try to scare them.

I think you're right it's a man's natural tendency to be degenerate. We all rip and tare at each other with very little regard
for the tender feelings of those around us, especially children. We all look back on a shadowy story. The challenge
becomes putting the engaging past behind us and living in the now it's all there really is I try to make it a point to break up with
my brain because I think that's where my problem exists. Oh well that's just me.

The power of our language can and will change the world.
Successively until our languages become one!

Those people are toxic...find new relationships. the farther you get from their toxicity, the better you will feel! Your poem really takes the breath away!
