"Before avenging dig two graves / And grieve twice as you do"

Life Waits

Before avenging dig two graves
And grieve twice as you do
Love liberates as hate enslaves

"Thou shalt not kill" applies to all: us too

Until we are no more
Hope is not dead
Life waits outside our door
But seeing only death our heart and mind
Lock down instead
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
As Gandhi said

So what are we here for?

For life! For hope! For seeing through both eyes!
For leaving death for dead to realize
Now is our time and leave war's ways behind

Before avenging dig two graves
And grieve twice as you do
Love liberates as hate enslaves

Life waits outside for you

Dig two graves and bury two hate-filled murders in them, say a prayer over their bones, and go home. That's my take on the two graves. I understand the compassion within your words, but I guess I am too stupid to understand how allowing some of these monsters to live after they have done what they have done. My compassion is steered toward the poor victims husbands, wifes, mother and daddy's.
