This funny thing we come to know as life,
Both a blessing & a curse in darkness & in light.
Old men sending youngins to fight.
How hard does the goathead bite?
Is it truly out of mind when done out of sight?
The unseen shadows see what is not meant to be seen.
Carry on & take care
Merry songs are made to share
Do not quiver from the devil's stare;
It is not your burden to bare.
Against the odds, how well do you fare?
The one who quietly sobs...
How dare you try to compare?
Tears have your vision impared.
Emotional wrecks can be repaired.
Rise from the ashes.
The phoenix ablaze
From the matches
Stricken by the masses.
Put on your glasses
& look past
The clash of the classes.
Resilience in the face of impasses
Hold tight as it crashes
Against the fascists
Zionism plagues Jewish
& Palestinian pacifists.
Pay attention to the hacktivists.
Don't listen to televangelists.
Avoid both the blacklist & being a conformist.
Think for yourselves & free your mind.
Only then will you begin to delve
Into what you sought out to find.
