Civil Wars

February 8, 2011

Civil wars rage in the hearts of men

Pitting good sons against

Themselves trying to do the good

Is out of reach

And out of touch

Through uninformed misinformation

Has deluded minds once sharp

As a sword their tongues slash

At loved ones once protected

Themselves in the moment of truth

Is an aberration

A nuisance even

In the effort to please

Themselves

Me     My     Mine

Selfishness is a vicious land mine

And it’s a vicious time

And it’s a violent time

And the blood flows as tears

And the sinews ripped to shreds

Are the hearts of innocents

In fields of flowers

Open and trusting

Running in the sunshine

A cannon shot
