His Last Breath

To the tranquil heavens he raised
his last words, the soldiers he 
praised
for their bravery in killing little 
innocent children
and their strength in abusing the 
weak brethren

To the vast blue skies he raised
his last poetic voice, the dictators 
he praised
for their hearts of stone that killed 
many living flesh
and their eyes that rejected the 
hungry while they eat fresh

To the smooth sailing clouds he 
raised
his last voice, the heroes he 
praised
for their courage to risk their spirit 
to save
their race and their lives are the 
gifts they gave

To the warm embrace of the wind 
he raised
his last gratified song, the mothers 
he praised
for their small voice in begging 
compassion
their ardent love for their family is 
raging with passion

To the spirit from the gas chamber 
he raised
his last breath, the future survivors 
he praised
for their silence and tough faith
he wished for their triumph over 
uncertain fate

To the darkness of his sight he 
raised
his last prayer, his God he praised
for giving devils that let him hold a 
candle to light
and for teaching him to make 
worth of his life

    Amazing lines!!!!!! The power behind this message is so strong. That last stanza was a doozy.
