Poem Commentary

This is dedicated to the fallen, especially the sixteen year old. Why does a father involve his son in this sort of thing? I think religion is to blame, pushing armageddon on our youth and ignorant adults. I think of my own son and daughter and hope they never get involved in this part of what is supposed to bring salvation and redeemption not lead us into the big lie. Only god knows when armageddon will come. Lets live life, love and be loved with anything else Jesus' message and death was in vain. My love goes out to the fallen and all those lost in a lie.

©2010 Poison of Youth (Fear in Religion)

Two officers lie dead
two wounded on the ground
A father and his teen son die exchanging lead
Four lives over , in fire fought rounds.

A "routine" traffic violation gone wrong
young minds full of racism and biblical armageddon
too tragic almost for poetry, too taboo for song
confused youth, ignorant adults, with nothing won.

The van they drove linked to white supremecy
sixteen's a bit too young for such a condition
preachers spouting that its the end ,you see
warping their empty heads into submission.

Jesus said, "only my father knows when it is time"
we need not fret over something like this
cant we live life today? Death comes too soon to find
our souls in pretention, that state leaves life missed.

Remember the words of our prophet crucified
before taking that path again
such a war as that is only genocide
it kills His message and yeilds insanity , unneeded pain.

I like the fact that you write so raw...it brings out the emotion of the situation and you do it so beautiful. It's almost as if I'm sitting there watching this happen

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
