the devil
took all the wrong sons
and raped all the wrong daughters

and you think i need a crash course in grace...?

though war achieves nothing
(no matter whose name it's in)
so many people live this way
yet so few take the time to notice

so i forget my name and surrender...

the beggars come out to dance
on the church steps -
everyone wants their two cents worth
but no one wants change

and yet you think my defiance is self destructive...

As long as you should live, your name will never be Surrender.
Like a Nile rived reed you will bend against the desert's storm wind, but will raise again, will never broken, and the spirit will be as indestructible as the piramides.

Splendid exercise for the mind of any poet contemplating on writing an enigma.

DAMN!!!!!! Cedric, you got my mind goin' with this one: deeply thought provoking. I will be mulling over this. Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This is a manifesto masquerading as a riddle wrapped in a mystery disguised as a poem. I will be mentally chewing over it all day. I am unsettled by it, inspired to sing by it, challenged by it. Love it!

"everyone wants their two cents worth
but no one wants change..."

If that isn't the most succinct and accurate socioeconomic commentary of who we've become as a nation, I don't know what is.

YAY, I'm just reading what's so amazing about grace...phil yancey...

Murder is wrong, but war can be a necessity.

Imagine if Churchill never faught off the Nazi Tyranny with all its vile acts, and just capitulated like the rest of europe, not helping the jews back to freedom, etc, etc, etc.

People like my father who faught in that war, my great uncle who died in the first one, because of men like that, we enjoy our freedom. Appeasement is for the man feeding the alligator, hoping to be the last one eaten by it.



Kinda in Nietzsche's style, the man was a fool and coward, as with Tolstoyism, and look how they ended up...



Very dark write...
Cleverly written and has sure got my gray matter working..
Reviewed by Felix Perry
J I love the way you stir the mind to think about each line and verse that you offer us. The possible illusion to abuse in the opening, the anti war sentiments in the second and the anti potlitical/rligious stance with the conclusion a look at your accusers...well done my young friend. Really liked this one and the style you chose to do it in.

"though war achieves nothing
(no matter whose name it's in)" . . . World War II is an exception . . .

A rebel-with--a-cause is the theme of this poem . . . Artfully and may I add . . . Gracefully done . . .
Reviewed by Victor Buhagiar (Reader)
A poem that will perplex many. You depicy a struggle. My opinion is that it is not time or defiance that heal but love the agape type. Victor
