the war journal entry III

some men are born to be killed
some men life means nothing to

can old men hold their heads and cry
you can only dodge so many shots 
before you eventually take a a few
then it's about surviving

some men have no nightmares
some men only dare to dream
history reflects repeated screams
women, colored men, stars of david

I wish i could let it go
i can not
I wish there were such palaces as heaven minus hell
i don't know what i believe in

some men believe there should be 
a balance between good and evil
some men misunderstand the hurt
the hurt then becomes lethal

I don't know how i got here
or how much longer i will be here
but if i don't stand now
i will forever be falling down

i can only hope you understand
my sister says we didn't choose this life, she cries
I don't even know her
but i could feel the droplets from her eyes

some men are born into lies
others into contradictions
some men mean well
other live in a figment of fiction

"tiny thoughts of the black hitler"
