Sitting in the dark with tears
As if by magic light appears

Sunrise and with it my joy
In all that God did employ

While on my porch I see
The birds assemble faithfully

I feel their unity so strong
As they sing their morning song

Soon traffic begins to hum
People shrugging off doldrums

Trees swaying with the breeze
Scent of blossoms makes you sneeze

Thoughts of it disappearing one day
Gives me impetus to pray

Yet all the terror seems so surreal
In this environment of peace I feel

Those who use weapons so readily
Must come from a planet unknown to me

I cannot fathom where comes the will
To make people want to destroy and kill

I know all about theories of evil and good
But the choice we make is also understood

I ponder why  some choose the way of war
It isn't just because of their needs for more

The fact that many terrorists come from poverty
Is not the reason they have chosen weaponry

Wars are started by leaders greedy for power
Who brainwash their illiterate youth to devour

Instead of using their oil money to educate
They teach all of their youth to eradicate

They have means to enrich all in their nation
Instead they seek world power and domination

Then other nations are forced to defend
Today's weapons are a  horrendous blend

This is why in the dark visions haunt me
That we destroy God's creation so thoughtlessly

Those engaged in war must seek to make amends
Not just fight doggedly uncaring how it ends

I concur with Susan below completely..
It is a gene disorder with these savages who prey on the earth's inhabitants..
Everything about their background and culture is volatile, unstable and unnatural

Amen to all that.
The ass and the head are truly interchangeable with these monsters.

If you know your Bible you will see that man first wanted to be like God, then killed his brother. It is still the same today: we are always playing at being God and killing our brothers. It will never stop. Victor

Always a gun pointed at a soldier's heart. If a truce can survive in the night, the morning will bring a sense of peace. Accidental wilderness, the DMZ region hosts 350 rare red-crowned cranes, anticipating a time when troops are withdrawn, conservatists lobby for wildlife sanctuaries and peace parks minus smoke bombs and the sounds of heavy artillery...a searchlight on another nighttime maneuver, no...that's the rising of the moon, would be cool, huh, Eileen, tonight and every night, a peaceful place...

Is that the sun or a nuclear blast in the pic...fortunately the people who like to destroy have yet to find a way to strike with a nuclear weapon...though I doubt it is long in coming...tis' a painful thought for our future...Ed

well, this one strikes me as one of your strongest calls for sanity and sensibility, at least as it pertains to our war-crazy, violence-addicted world. this is your forte, calling us to a more excellent way. Dawn

you echo my concerns that i so strongly wrote about last night E. But be advised, the enemy within. I am truly dismayed by our countries leader abuse of authority and power. I am at a loss as to what we are standing to gain with our continued occupation of Iraq. I'll se if i can squeeze what i wrote in on my page.

Eileen, this is so very needed right now with all that's going on..It does seem like the ones filled with hatred are from another planet. I write about them and call them blind folded, because any time a human solves life with violence for no reason is blind folded to the real spiritual wisdom of what their heart is...We can however take comfort in the fact that we have a loving maker that adores us and if we look around us there are so many blesings..Thank you for this extrodinary piece..I shall interceed more often for the lost sheep..

Eternal Love, Dove

The beasts of war are those that have a gene pool disorder I think. For they couldn't love this earth and respect it like teir ancestors did at one time. I wonder if pollution hasn't warped their own compassion for this earth because they just don't give a dayum about our world, our fate or our children and grandchildren. You read my thoughts and penned them with wisdom.
Great job Sis!
