Peaceful Words

The cruel machinations
Of their gods
Run through them
As they aim with their sights
And rest the blades
Against the soft necks
Of their enemy

For them
Killing is a necessary first step
On the ladder
To their personal heaven

But we know better

Don’t we?

We deal with the sadness
The bloody aftermath
Etched into our minds
In our own way

But the anger I feel
Does not end with gunfire
But with the gentle typing of a keyboard

My idea of heaven
Is for words
To be powerful enough
To give life
Instead of take

My ladder to heaven
Leads to forgiveness
Not via religion
Or Spirituality
But through the understanding
Nature
Of peaceful words
