Today in Canada is Remembrance Day
A Day when we remember all those who have given
life, limb and mind to protect the notion of Freedom.
Though I do not believe in the politics war
I honour ALL who serve
and all who believe in fighting for their rights
and the rights of others.
I grieve with all those
whose loved ones never came home
will not come home.
I grieve the pain of those who do.
The horrors they now live with
The shredded hearts they house
The empty souls they have become
No one wins in war.
Only those who sit "above" us common folk
investing and conspiring
to further their kindgom
and their wealth
who would sacrifice others
for the "greater good"
with righteous anger in my voice
"God be with your Souls..."
and in the stillness
of my heart
and the fullness of my soul
as tears stream down my face
I wisper the words
of my teacher Jesus:
for they know not what they do"
Love and Light
