Daily missive for Thursday the 8th of January.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Thursday the 8th of January.

How could I breathe?
Close my eyes
And go to sleep.
Ask the Lord my soul
To keep.
How could I weep.
Who would it be for.
Not for innocence
Any more.
What could I say.
How could
I bow my head and pray.
What would I think.
Could I laugh
And have fun.
Enjoy a good film,
A meal, a drink,
Go for a run.

What would I do
To stop
Me losing you.
Would I still cry,
When children die.
If in the course of
Taking a breath,
I had taken a life,
Caused a death.
How could I live.
What would it mean,
To be,
To breathe,
With the truth
Of all I had done
Taken to arms,
Fired a gun.
How could I grieve
For what I lose.
If taking life
Is what I choose.
