    Your sitting in the darkness
    the suns blocked by the night
    everythings going backwards
    and your trying to take flight

    You realise its a bind,
    trapping your fragile mind,
    you break out
    and without a doubt
    the world is there to find.

    Then your running through the streets
    looking at your feet
    watching every step you take
    its me your trying to meet

    you stumble about to fall
    into a big brick wall
    when i catch you
    you know its true
    that i give you my all.

    We kiss in the lifting mist
    which seems like a brief time
    i take your hand and lead you through
    the maze of hate and crime.

    tanks and troops roll by
    they're sent off to die
    in some foreign land
    with dunes of sand
    the reason is a lie.

    They came looking for us
    me and you and others too
    all they found was innocents
    who only believed their god was true.

    we hide behind some rubble
    this war has burst our bubble
    our freedom's dead
    the tear's we've shed
    don't seem to ease the trouble.

    we reach the city limits,
    and go to the gateway out
    the sentry's looking down at us
    but he doesn't curse or shout

    he kneels down on the floor
    a tear forms with eyes so raw
    he says that he was tricked you see
    into serving for the military
    he wishes he'd ignored the lies before

    he smiles at the two of us
    the pity in his eyes
    handing you a flower
    he breaks the miltary ties

    He throws off his badge and cap
    the border gate's barrier went with a snap
    the guard is seen
    a shot kills him clean
    and his head falls in my lap.

    I shed one last tear of anger
    how come the people who suffer in war are good?
    you tell me to run
    thats the thing with the world,
    evil doesn't die but should.

    I love this poem Danny....

    The way it's written is technically great but the message is the strongest thing that leaps out to me here.
