Dying For Peace

If I weren't afraid, 
I'd be lying 
Knowing what day...
That I would be dying
Afraid not for me, 
But afraid for my loved ones 
Leaving them saddened...
When my final day comes
I'd be lying,
If I weren't afraid 
Knowing that... 
My last bed had been made
I'm not scared of dying, 
My life has been good 
But I'd die for peace...
If I thought that I could
With the world full of terrorists,
The scum on the earth 
Dying to rid them...
Would be well-worth
For extinction of hatred,
To all to be kind 
I'd die for peace on earth...
For all mankind

    Me think you're thinking like the man from Galilee... I'm sure he would have been worried about leaving behind those 12 sure they didn't believed they would make it without him...Nice one

    hi Charles, I am also afraid of leaving loved ones behind and the heartache that they will go through, but one thought consoles me , my father died at the age of 64 - he has been my guardian angel for many many years, as I hope to be for our sons one day! A poem of great depth. Hugs, Jennifer.

    Hello Charles … just as well we don't know our use by date. I couldn't imagine the feeling on death row. Dying for peace hasn't worked yet. Another fine thought provoking poem Charles - Lindsay
