acquiesce…

when do we
become our enemy
how many lives
must be taken
before we
are
them
or
is it
not
a number
but
when
we
accept
their
rules
of behavior
and
we
kill
to purify
our
nation
as
they
did

  1. I guess it’s too hard to tell.. or maybe too easy..
    The best would be to never give oneself the chance to doubt one’s intent and integrity… enmity with self and with another is FOUL!!! No matter what! (sigh)

    This poem read like a sword, Charles.. went through and through! Really liked it!!! And the image is absolutely perfect for your sharp and powerful words, my friend..

  2. I’ll just pay if forward
    Instead of worrying about
    Getting pay back
    And hope beyond
    Hope that it will
    Continue on
    Into the
    Future
    Unbroken.

    Really loved this piece.
