Reality s Obligation

I`m on a constant search to find freedom
Freedom in a world torned apart in a ruthless commotion
And to satisfy an endless quest for unnecessary goods and power

The unstable spiritual balance..flipped over by the lack of common sence
Destroyed by an overwhelming hunt to achive meaningless goods
Why and how did we loose grip of reality`s obligation..

Predators awaits..politicians and dictators with crocodile grins
Reveals their infected teeth after chewing up millions of victims
Born right into war and economic misery

What lurks around the corner for these hunted souls..
Another chemical attack pointed towards them and their children
The beast is awakened..and the devil himself creeps out into the bright daylight

"...God Be With You My Syrian Friends.."

    In going over my first posts on this site I have found several posts from you, Arild. I'm coming to return the favor. I know it's late, but never too late, right? This poem gives us pause for though. I live in Lebanon and the situation in Syrian has its implications here. It is so sad what is happening to the refuges from Syrian. This is a powerful write about their plight. God bless you.

    Some great communicating going on here Arild; I suppose the people who carry on in such ways really believe their own propaganda, although every reality points to the insubstantiality of their 'goals' well we are seeing the tip of things right now..'

    This is so true of what is happening on our beautiful planet these days-- Syria and many other at war because of greedy politicians and dictators. However, God has promised... the enemy will be defeated, He will tear down the strongholds. Great poem.
