To Suffer


Men fall

Women die

Children weep

Over what used to be their parents

Lying in streets

Charred bodies

Killed without mercy

Killed without reason

No salvation

Within this nation

No limits

To destruction

No companionship

Is gained

The people of this world

They are lost

They are misguided

They attack

All of our rights

All of our freedoms

We have no safety

In our world

We have no safety

In our life

Disembodied souls

Embark on a different journey

They have left us

They watch us

They listen to our sorrows

They are not gone

Not forever

Nothing is forever

Not even death

Death is new life

In a different form

It is freedom

It is salvation

It gives new life

For eternity

No one shall die
