A Cowards Will

Written by: Mark Woods

I gift to you this world my child Alas its’ troubles I can’t tame Others efforts I have reviled On judgement day I’ll face the same. I’ve seen the mosque where people weep At times Christs’ church rocked to the core and God’s chosen placed in trenches deep Watched peace and love hijacked for war. Cowards choose to say they’ve failed So do not accept mans’ violent bent Hate speech is bloodshed thinly veiled Unity a gift from heaven sent. When imam, priest or rabbi call Hear love not hate to heal us all.
