Peer Pressure of the Worst

Peer pressure of the worst no matter who they are
They can be a boy or girl that they believe to become martyr's

Strapped to these young souls, is something they just don't understand
Yet the cowards who persuade them to miss, becoming a woman or a man

What, where, why or when, does this quest justify it's means
For it arises in the warped depraved, in twisted confused dreams

For in this book that they all crave about, this they cannot do
It's against their religion to request the suicide of you

For all their Cleric's whom they are, they sit and witness so
Not one has ever spoken out, to stop this exploding blow

Why is this I ask myself, for they fear the bullet of a gun
Because it's easier to suppress their young, terrorism has again begun

    This will have to go to my favourites James, these so called elders, that condemn and send their children to kill overs with a promise of paradise, are the pits of humanity. odd thing is they never volunteer to do it themselves. harry

    The young feel it so deeply too, sometimes it does destroy the sould when it won't stop. Such a sad write on a vicious reality.
