so sad

by Michele Schottelkorb

shots rang out in the dead of night
come on soldiers, it's time to fight
scared within; brave without
charging forward with a shout
this war is pain, this war is scary
this war on Earth is customary
frightened babies, innocents unknown
across the world peace has been blown
do we sit here and watch a terrorist
butcher lives; oh, he does his best
is it our business, to police the world
to contribute to this havoc, and chaos untold
answers i have not, my soul in conflict
do i support our freedom or idly sit
my heart is torn in such a way
my gentle soul so somber this day
every person in the world is so precious
not one is expendable; a universal chorus
i am sad and proud simultaneously
trying not to analyze with too much frailty
i tell the world i support our nation
and pray our choice will end; please listen
i wish for peace and sacred life
i wish for our world to be void of strife
i think i know this is the only way
so why am i so sad on this beautiful day


Author's Note: i do not claim to know the answers... i pray for us all to live in peace... my thoughts especially go out to those that risk their lives so that we may live in freedom...
