Journey to War

Each day there is something sad in the world:political insanity, terrorist acts, senseless acts of violence, cruelty, gross misunderstandings…..The list goes on and on. These countless tragic events shade my normally happy outlook on life. Therefore, this is a poem for that.


Fights and anger, turn into war

Yet everyone’s side, has the same score

Violence breeds violence, or so I’ve seen

I don’t get it and I don’t want to be mean

I want us to come together, like God planned

But we continue to divide…I don’t understand

Our Nation of ours is filled with such turmoil

Its building and building and it’s about to boil

From terrorism to politics to the division of race

All I can do is pray, as tears run down my face
