Sept.11th. = War, Foulness, Tears & Greed - Poem by Tom Zart

As war is fought it takes charge
And events spin out of control.
The madness of men can alter the soil
Which nourishes the roots of their soul.

Many things will forever change
Far more then wished to be.
As the wrath of war starts to destroy
Those things we fight to keep free.

War is the greatest plague of man,
Religion, state and sanity.
Any scourge is more preferred
Than the one which disables humanity.

When war breaks out, boundaries change
And all who die are a token
Of the rage that must run its course
Before words of peace are spoken.


God may place us in deep waters
But He doesn't wish us to drown.
Adversity shows us ourselves
As to others we smile or frown.

There's no better teacher in life
Than the troubles which come our way.
Adversity strengthens our minds
As we think what to do and say.

Constant success shows but one side
Of the world we find ourselves in.
Adversity teaches us all
That people love, hate, lust and sin.

Adversity and its hardships bring us closer to Jesus
When God is the source of our every need.
When we count on Him and trust His will
We can overcome war, foulness, tears and greed.
