Whispers of War
Hear the silent music
secluded and forlorn.
The Faithless masks have fallen
Reality now scorned.
Shrouded in Conviction
the bloodied Hope defies,
with swords and courage raging
they fight on in sunset skies.
The veil of Tears is tainted
and thus blinded by Death’s gore.
Ruthless and destructive
the warriors fight for more.
Truth dispels the Silence
as Hollow prophets shout,
and Death reveals the Imminent,
dressed, in robes of Doubt.
illuminates the Past.
The Truth is often painful
but the knowledge there is vast.
Cruelty lies in Silence
for all the Innocent Souls.
Their vanished Dreams lie dormant
and their memories grow cold.
Their lives methodically taken,
Their families ripped apart.
Can you not hear the voices
as they whisper in your Heart?
Revenge is thus awaiting
like a beast you feed unknown.
Turn your back, devoured you’ll be
by contemptuous thoughts alone.
Don’t be naive,
they respect you not,
It’s Hatred they spout
to create in you,
Their Lies fall easily
from lips unsealed,
to sear the Faithful
as their Evil’s revealed.

I wrote this one a couple of weeks ago but just haven’t had time to post it. Home you like it. Children are NOT born with HATRED for others, THAT is TAUGHT, as is bias, religious thoughts and/or expectations, social expectations, culture.
My personal thought is that children not only are TAUGHT Cultural beliefs (I’m not saying that’s wrong), but they also SEE/WATCH the actions of elders and those they hold in high esteem. I really don’t think that my country (this is MY Opinion) should try to go into another Country to try to “liberate” it and then turn around an leave. I don’t think we should choose sides in their Civil Wars, but at the same time, I don’t feel that other countries should either. Also, I think any leader who is naive enough to tell the leader of another country that what they are doing is illegal or against some World Decision, when that President doesn’t even respect or abide by his own countries Constitution. Why should anyone else trust my country, when they see the Govt. deceive the public over and over again and ignore their own the laws of their own country. I personally find it hard to understand why anyone would believe that words and promises will be kept…. especially under such double standards.
(This is my own opinion, my own thoughts, on war or conflicts, not just on any particular one. Look to history, we can’t change hundreds or thousands of years conflict between other countries. My question is why to we get involved? Is that our place to do so? Would we want them to come do that here? (It’s bad enough to have so many dishonest leaders as we have now). We are not “The Supreme Leader”, be that whomever is worshiped in the various countries. I call my guy “GOD”, so I ask…. is it OUR responsibility to judge others as to who is right and who is wrong?
Another thought….. (personal opinion), why would someone continue to plead the 5th and not answer any questions if they were innocent? If copies of the email conversations are in hand, why refuse if you aren’t guilty? I do not know if this is fact, but I was told that the Department of Justice (Holder) has already told her that nothing is going to happen to anyone involved. (If that is true, has he judged them as innocent before the truth is told, or is he covering up for himself or someone else? Just questions that I wonder about.
I must admit, I do find it rather ironic when they want to have OUR Govt. tell us what to do, what to eat., what to teach our children, what kind of insurance we are allowed to have, who will live and who will die (as the panel of NON-MEDICAL people decide if our medications are “COST EFFECTIVE or not)…… I don’t understand when someone runs for an elected office on the premise of making things easier for the people with pre-existing conditions and getting healthcare for the un-insured, while Insurance companies are forced to drop millions of people who were already insured and now can’t get insured. ( Many more than have signed up on the working or not, web site… that # also included many of the prisoners in many states, to make the numbers look better)
Oh well, I cannot solve the world’s problems…. besides the fact that the leaders wouldn’t list, they aren’t honest. People would be STUNNED at what was stuck into the Health care law that have nothing to do with that…
Oh, by the way…. I know I’m not even close to being perfect thought I do try to be the very best, most honest person I can….. The Athesist can have their own feelings or beliefs, but just because they say they are offended by seeing a CROSS anywhere and it causes them distress… Well, I’m here to tell them, they are deeply offending and distressing ME (who has as many rights as they do) by trying to take the word GOD or any religious symbols from society. WHERE IS THE TOLERANCE THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON?????
