Desperate Times Lead to Desperate Measures

Desperate times lead to desperate measures.
A moment in time when feeling cornered,
The answers flee by and there's no feel of hope.
When survival is the only thought and fears keep logic severed,
Desperate times lead to desperate measures.
The memories of the past are heavily layered,
Emotions keep rationality out of the scope,
Actions lash out in ways that are otherwise unfavored.
Desperate times lead to desperate measures,
What occurred wasn't meant to create censure.

I started this poem thinking about prejudice and why it's important to refrain from quick judgment. I imagined being any person feeling desperation and how the loss of hope can lead to the unwanted. I used this perspective to lead the poem. When not in a devastating situation, judgement shouldn't be laid without knowing. Desperation stems from a world that can't be seen by all.
