Not Now Of Your Choosing - Poem by David Keig

You can't accept my life is mine
And that those with whom i spend my time
Are now not of your choosing.

You can't accept that different ways
And different ways of spending days
Are not now of your choosing.

You can't accept its not a war
Not like it was those times before
And no-one now is losing.
