    He sent us on a blind mission
    ...well his vision was clear...
    but like the "good soldiers" we swore
    to be/ we went along
    with the plan/ with our eyes closed...
    after being here too **** long...
    I can no longer close my eyes/
    I dream of babies body parts suspended
    in the air dancing to the sound
    of rapid gunfire destined for an
    enemy I don't really hate/but now
    survival is the game/and with this trigger,
    my squeeze can't be late...
    every bullet that reaches it's point
    of destination/ a last breath is exhaled/
    and a cry is born...
    If I die will my child cry like that?/
    I've learned that we all cry in the same language
    I can no longer close my eyes
    ...been trying to keep the faith
    duck and dodge enough to make it home/
    but, another 37 died today...I thought the
    mission was accomplished/the war over/
    it's just begun...oil companies herded together
    like bloody sheep on a land not belonging to them
    ...but he had a vision to "save their freedom"
    /my ability to be amused has been tested...
    and now their are elections/ why doesn't he steal that one, two...
    and stay here...so I can go home.

    Spoken words of a true King, the beauty that lies upon your pen, the spirit that flows, and the ink that cries, the sweet words of psalms, my brother the master poet, continue to keep hope alive. :luvu:
