Compassion [February 02, 2016]


Love is a shadow, with no form
It has no power here, no uniform
Darkness resides in the hearts of men
It carries blood, it carries sin

Evil brings slaughter and pain
It brings no laughter, only stains
Crimson splatters against the innocent
As the evil brings forth cruel punishment

Peace is unobtainable, for it cannot linger
Too greedy are the men who point their fingers
The people are crushed under oppression
All this aggression, can bring only depression

Armies march, battles rage
It doesn't matter which day and age
The world always returns to past wrongs
Where once again, the people cannot stand strong
For the men wearing crowns or title still hold all the power
And the people cannot do anything, but cower

The government changes, they say all is fair
And behind your back, they poison in the air
With nothing but lies and false hope on their lips
The people fight for a leader who brings the apocalypse

The believe they are fighting for what is right
But in reality, more innocence is killed in twilight
For the leaders, no matter which country, all hide behind walls
As their people die in their place, taking the fall
Blood and tears, pain and sorrow
There is nothing left for tomorrow
Anger and agony, death and life
It all becomes one, beneath the knife

Generations pass, the world has changed
Although peace has not been obtained
The world is divided, it cannot stand strong
Until the men with greed, sing the same song
Until we all understand each other
We can never be together

For the men wearing crowns or title still hold all the power
And the people cannot do anything, but cower
