The Pen or the Sword

What is more powerful?
The pen or the sword
A question asked time and time again.
So powerful is the sword that it ends human life.
Yet the pen has ended struggles, wars and strife.
The pen or the sword?
The pen gave me a lifelong friend
The sword, misery and pain.
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
The pen, write each day, live to write again.
A simple choice, as simple as taking a breath.
The pen gives life!
The sword, always Death

Entropy

We are breaking down
As a matter of fact
We are confused
Locked in a state of hatred
Chasing dreams, like fools
Golden desires comsume us
No uniformity
We lust
We rape
We kill
We rob
No sense of love
No god above
Around and around we go
Slowly we disintigrate
Like Humpty Dumpty
That is our fate.
We are breaking down
As a matter of fact

A Peace of the world

If I had a peace of the world
My peace would be long-lasting
If I had a peace of the world
Love would be all around, for the asking
My peace would be the world over
No wars, no famine, no injustice
No pain, no disease, no hate
My peace would be the law
If I had a peace of the world
No one would be separated
My peace
A great big beautiful world
Where all would be related
If I had a piece of the world

Knocking at the Door

Death's door knocks as I wait
The executioners block
Tales of life I seek,
Their companionship calls to me.
Strange memories flood my wait.
A life's blur passes my brain
Life's tales, threatening
To drive me insane
Death, I have no desire for
The beauty of life
The glory of existence
The essence of being
Seeps from my pores.

Death's door knocks as I wait
The executioners block
I will not answer!
