I Have no understanding of times like these.


    Spinning blades forged of blackest sin,

Whirl and twirl from the evil within,

Wrought by a hate that I will never understand,

These bastards of Satan have butchered another innocent man.




Vile and sick are these cowards, in their false belief,

For there is no religion that makes murder its decree.

For they come to rob, and they come to steal from the innocent souls

of their own little children who are to young for hate to know.

They teach them from their youth, and in their hearts…evil they sow.

And they watch in darkest glee as the hatred in their own children grows.




Spinning and turning,

The steel of evil is yearning,

And death is its name

For the days of sorrows

Fast approach our tomorrow

when evil will be at the top of its game.




Even still,

I can’t find it in my will

to kill in anybody’s name.

For cant you see,

Life is sacred to me.




Where do I stand,

in this evil land?

For I am taught to forgive,

However, this is darkness

That must not live.

And seek peace in His name forever.

extremism in any form is intolerable ... hatred under the guise of religion is a most unfortunate pretense of the human condition ...

powerful poem ...

Allen this is a fantastic, humanitarian piece
I'm glad we can at least get it out on paper
I've been sick all day.
I'm trying to understand what possible use I can be.
How can I help,to stem the tide of misery that is
approaching us all. Those poor families, I cried and
prayed on and off all day.How can we fight such evil,
save for 'God's intervention, yet people still don't get it,
and the country is divided.God be with us!

I wish for all the killings to stop, my friend...
I think it's in the Lord's hands and may not be
resolved until His coming...

Time to leave the whole of the middle east, to middle more blood spilled for the sake of Allah, no more holy war, if they want a "real" war, even though I am thoroughly against it and would vote for peace, I say give them what they want...they have no bravery to face down tanks, and nuclear weapons...all they have is cowardice, hiding their faces behind masks and hoods...didn"t the KKK lose most of its might of the past the very same way?

This subject just pisses me the f*** off, sorry to be so strong here but I am tired of the deaths happening to our brothers, it is time to, unfortunately, fight back...Ed

Very painful but thoughtful write here. Lest we forget...Nicholas Berg...only 26 years old...the first to have been beheaded.

This is a kind of hatred and horror that is so incredibly hard to make any sense of at all.

Thank you for sharing this, and I shall endeavor to keep all of the families of these people in my thoughts and prayers.
