From my mind
Email Poem | Today's Poetry


Is this life such an open book?
Would you come back turn the page and take a second look?
We seem to make the same mistakes in life day after day
Does it make me a sinner when on Sundays I don't go to church and pray?
If the pen is mightier than the sword do we give our soldiers pens?
Should we open up our arms to politicians and call them our friends
Do we live to die fighting other people's wars?
Do we live to die fighting when we can't find the cause?
Winning the battle does not mean you'll win the war
Is this really what we were put on this earth for?
They say that winning the battle you live to fight another day.
Bow down thy heads and together the Lord's Prayer we will say.
For ever and ever Amen.
