Daily missive for Monday the 11th of August.~War mongers.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 11th of August.

War mongers.

You call me evil,
Because I do not believe you.
I am beaten,
My house burned down,
Buried in the ground,
Because I am different.

You kill me.
And blame it on others.
Say I am too much like them
When all I do
Is to care.
And ask for nothing
But to live
In peace.

I do not hate you.
But you hate me.
What have I done
For that to be?
I do not believe
This is a fight
For what is right,
When I do nothing
But love you.
Will you love me?

All children
Are peacemakers.
And they lie
Buried in dark places.
Covered by hate,
Spread by your hand.
I do not understand
How you can say,
It is all for love.

And you wonder
Why,
I don’t believe it.
