Trying to put what I'm thinking about today into words.



Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Stuck in this deep crevasse

Not sure just how I fell.

Wondering where it might lead,

Down to molten rock, or hell.

What am I doing here?

Choosing not yet to yell

About the things I have seen

The dark places where men dwell.

Rooms planning destruction,

Retribution, what's due.

Whatever you will call it,

'til they're doing it to you.

I heard the truth today.

It wasn't the whole truth.

There is another angle,

But I don't know what to do.

Who are they? Who are we?

Why should we even care?

Why should we be the ones now

To storm through this devil's lair?

They're listening, we know.

They're watching so beware.

Those soldiers all have families

Who loved them, so say a prayer.

For all men and women

Who must follow the one,

Each doing their bit of right,

This machine favors no one.

So many facets gleam,

Reflections of the sun

Intense, small streams of white light

Blinding truth from what's been done.

In the name of glory,

The right of self-defense,

Preemption, or redemption,

If the truth will out... commence.
