Peace be with you.
My peace I give you.
All around the bombs abound.
Scattered bodies lie everywhere.
Broken, their spirits spent.
Mother’s son’s, squandered youth lies wasting in earth’s weed.
And what of life?
This gift pawned for another’s mans greed.
We sit like zombies,
fixed eyes on synthetic screen.
Like maggots, we play with decay.
Barren ground splattered with oil and blood.
O peace where is Your army?
Help us in this time of need.
Why are we judged from a high-rise place?
We humble sinners without ‘grace’.
Condemned in eloquent tongue,
people like us who humbly work on.
They speak about death, destruction, war and plight.
How God will punish us, as wayward followers of light.
I listen as my poor heart aches, for a non-judgmental God who gently waits.
My God is compassionate, loving, accepting, forgiving,
Not exclusive to some but for all living.
