Once was a war, the worst we’d had

With consequence both bad and sad

Most of our men who truly tried

Did all they could before they died !

 

LINCOLN’S ADDRESS TO THE NATION WAS 11/19/1863

My tears are for the many men

Who never will go home again

Like those who pledged to give it all

In battle’s heat as they did fall.

Oh Lord in Heaven hear my plea

They gave their lives for me and Thee

Their sacrifice was far too great

With rewards that arrive too late !

I find that life at best is strange

Though I’m not opting for a change

Nor am I saying that it’s bad

What choices are there to be had ?

It seems to me, we have no say

As lives evolve from day to day

Tis time that we accept the fact

It’s God who pens the final act !

 

WILL WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/11

I’ve often wondered why it’s so

That sadness follows where we go

And life is never thought complete

Without these stories of defeat

Or why we rally to the cause

Of infidels and unjust wars

And so the cycle carries on

When will all wars cease and be gone ?

What is this hell that men call war

What is it they are fighting for

They’ve wasted so much blood and gore

We’ve known  it all and want no more !

 

MAKE WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/11

I have been taught my whole life long

To love my God and to be strong

To help my neighbors and my friends

To pray for peace and make amends.

Yet still I find the world I see

Is rife with much hostility

The days grow old, deep in morass

When will some of this anger pass ?

In all our lives we find no peace

When will God grant our soul’s release,

I don’t know how to fight the beast

Help us, oh Lord, make wars to cease !

 

 

 

 

 

I CAN’T FORGET ( 2017 ) 2017/03/28

My heart got lost so long ago

How that occured I cannot know

It was that war, I often think

That took our values to the brink

The young, the old, the in-between

Not one of us escaped the scene

It hollowed out each living thing

And in our lives did chaos bring

We took the test and some did win

Although too many were done in

And there were those, ones that I  saw

Who ne’er returned forever more

Oh Lord I wish I could  forget,

I haven’t mastered that trick yet !
