questioning the world

November 18, 2011




times of peace come close at hand-
but when does peace ever settle?-
people fight over miniscuilities-
wars are fought and lost over pennies in the road-
people, stripped of their dignity;

murdered because of the way they choose to live-
is this really a “free country”?-
the “land of opportunity”?-
if we really, truly were, people wouldn’t have to live in fear everyday-
what is so different now?-
all of our customs and religions are old school-
will we ever know the complete meaning of freedom and peace?-
we may be more prosperous, more free than the rest of the world,

but we, too, are captives in our own prisons-
with only our own demons and skeletons to guard the keys-
