SURRENDER TO LOVE



Still hurting and bloodied



He returned home from war



Another human heart broken



Crushed in conflicts he'd fought



Angry pain digging deeper



Than a man knew how to feel



Violence erupting in wounds



A severed mind can never heal



A flesh soldier over lifetimes



Conditioned to kill and defeat



Programmed to die as a hero



For his land of forced beliefs



Firing weapons of hatred



From behind walls in his heart



Hiding his masculine virtue



Under a society ripped apart



But you are home now dear warrior



Come lay your head on my heart



As I gently stitch up your wounds



And kiss better each scar



Time to remember your mission



Your sacred calling from above



All your wars will be over



When you surrender to love
