Raging on ancient soil
Men with hearts of stone
blood doth boil
Wherefore is compassion?
Why so much rage?
Springing forth from another age.
Judgements cast from afar see not clearly
Eyes clouded by hate
Demand a solution to problems when refusing to see their own
Glass housed masses casting stones
Angry and confused
Misled and chanting "death to Jews"
Heartbeats with twangs of fear
For the same slogans heard in a different year heralded great sorrow for so many
We already have sorrows plenty
Dangerous waters we tread upon
when people trade with hatred as their weapon
The question not who is wrong or right
HOW CAN WE END THIS FIGHT
Children never culpable
This is not war nor is it slaughter
What is the point? What is the goal?
Does anybody know?
If not then cease and desist
Life has more to it than this!
This isn't about religion
Although so many see that vision
This is a conflict for ancient land
Born of conflict and political plan
Look first at self before condemning any
There's hatred already aplenty
What I don't understand
When the conversation should be Israel CEASE
Why it became "All Jews Die!" decrees
This scares me
I love poetry.
