Unrest and violence

A world so angry

So broken

My father desires

Me to be ready

To fight

To kill

If necessary

The problem is

In the worst scenario

My life or theirs

I can only see

The cowardice

To take a life

That would be

Because

All I can think of

All I can see

Is Christ

His bravery

He saw the people

Who sought His demise

And prayed for them

While he died

I can't imagine

Exactly what I'd do

But I know one thing

I will never kill

If that means my life

My Father in Heaven

He holds life in His hands
