Change will come

Rain dripping on the window
Sunshine shortly follows
Too much beauty in this world
That isn't meant for us
Fighting, killing, spilling blood
All for nothing
Blood pouring like a flood
Erupting innocence on youth

Strange as it may seem
We all are to blame
Just looking past it all
Nothing to be done
or so we seem to think
Not wanting to be apart
Just sitting in the dark

Waiting for the chosen one
On our knees we pray each night
By dawn we awake
Forgetting what we had asked
Foolishly we dig the graves
of our children or there's
to walk the land of ours

This room shall shine with gladness
with arms wide open wild and free
Tis the dawning of a new day
Flowers growing where we touch
Living for the beauty inside 
Shall remain for all to see

Rapidly it's becoming more
Harder to look past it all
Closing your eyes won't take it away
The screams you'll still hear
and it will follow wherever you go

    ALL of the beauty is meant for us. I will NEVER believe in a god or goddess who represents otherwise. thanks for the write. ~N
