Down in the Fire

When down

in the fires

of earth

and the strife

we’ve molded from fear

we grow tired

of the misery we’ve made

must be more than what we’ve made here

that hell only shows us that heaven cried

watching the war games we played

and lost

anger at injustice shows us that justice must exist

misery shows us that joy must be available

battles show us that peace is possible

a lie that the truth must be out there

but where

in the flame

or in the flicker

or somewhere other…
