A Law Abiding Criminal

by Horace Payne (author's profile)


A Law-Abiding Criminal

i would love to speak of things
of the past,
but it's difficult to do when
injustices last.

Trying to help another going
into isolation,
still leaves room for retaliation.

When one disrespects another's
belief or faith,
this can only be a sign of hate.

Things I see seems so radiant,
not doing what's right, doing
it so blatant.

Could this be a dream I have
not waken from,
or is this a sign of what's
to come?

Whatever the case, I'm caught
in the middle,
immediate comfort from music
a poem or riddle.

Things seen were meant
for me to see,
clouded sight means it
wasn't meant to be.

With all of this turmoil
my future still seems bright
Satan needs more ammunition
to continue this fight.

If there's anyone out there
who really cares,
help recruit soldiers so
I can prepare.

Ricky, You really have a way with words. I hope some day you will write a song and it will be sung and be famous. Keep up the good work. My face is still aching, probably I have Bell!s Palsy. MOM
