Peace: a poem

My friend
We cross paths
Both misunderstood
You violent at times
the innocent are gone
Caught with devils

The spirits that reach
out of the earth
Into the open fire
But what did you do?
What didn’t you do?
Did that eye open when enclosed?

Did we laugh
When the ground opened?
Nobody will ever understand
As life is calm
Then momentarily calamity
Nobody forgives

Nobody forgets the calm
We all regret
The peace that disappears
The rape
The wounds
The empty room

Troubled mind
There was only one goal
It was one word in front of us
Possibly repeated
Possibly lost on us
