All For One~8

All For One

As war on this planet spreads like disease
Our leaders donít care and do as they please
Stepping on any who stand in their way
Bringing us closer to our judgement day

Life is a gift that weíve taken for granted
In the beds of dead roses we have planted
Fertilized by the lies and their hypocrisy
And nurtured by blood they spill endlessly

Thereís times Iím awake and start to scream
When I realize this nightmare isnít a dream
As Iím witnessing demons sitting on thrones
Carved out of pieces of humanities bones

So sometimes thereís anger in words I write
My knuckles are white from holding on tight
Watching the weak and the poor start to fall
While remembering when it was one for all

Author's Notes:
My reflections of time and chance often reminds me of how
fragile life is, whatever form of structure we exist within.
For it can be removed and altered in the course of minutes-
Some of it happens on its own,
and some of it we allowed to happen-
Yet what's done is done-
The question is,
Can we bear to live in the world we create-

 Once again your expression is amazing. The truth shown here is an awful reminder just how far we are willing to go before we all cry out for justice.

Peace and serenity for you and yours.

Such a truthful and wise write here. I hear you loud and clear.. My get away from all the strife of the world is going into nature where it is what it is and that is peaceful and serene yes I have to return but with such a clearer head. Time are horrible and yes we did create them now it is time to deal. Love this very knowledgeable write, filled with such truth makes one think long and hard.
