Blinded by Right and Wrong

I stood on a hill and screamed for peace...
Lost in the noise were friends that teased...

A mask that hides what's wrong and right...
Too many stones thrown that blinded my sight...
Wolves that prowled with a sheeps face and a devils soul...
Crept slowly in the dark where the truth was never told...

My cape is wrinkled and torn and bloodied from the day...
A battle well fought where being right lost its way...

Then left with a heart with blood still there to drain...
No need to ask the question, I'd do it all over again...

I don't write stories, I don't write make believe... I write what's in Me....    Michael

    That`s the right spirit Michael.How much peace and love would there be around us if we didn`t grab the bull by its horn every now and then? Sometimes it is needed in order to maintain the peace and love we see around us..Have a great weekend brother.

    And when you write what is in you, never apologize. It is your truth.

    Michael, this is the best Polaroid picture of U here on the soup. Never has there been a picture perfect poem on the soup, well described like this 1. Everything inside U is unique. A diamond glowing bright in its own mine. Sometimes the more life shows U it's true colors. U got 2 yell louder and listen to only U. If U can't find the peace it will find U through all the veils we dismiss. Love peace & happiness. Is what we aim for. Sadly we fall from it trying to do the righteous things always~pd
