Silent Support - Poem by AHO Speaks
For centuries they have always acted the same
By their silence they have to share some of the blame.
Wars do not just come about as a normal surprise
They are almost as predictable; as an earthly sunrise.
Wars cannot exist without the support of the people
Those who go to temple, mosque and the one's with the steeple.
Religions know what is taking place in the country they reside
They have their own people in positions of influence; inside.
Christianity's leaders who preach from the prince of peace
Suppport and condone the killing of their own with a word called 'deceased'
'Thy shalt not kill, thy shalt not kill, thy shalt not kill
Is exactly that and anything else is not according to God's will.
By their silence they do speak
So also they will never find but always seek.
Whom do the religous leaders talk to about evil sins of war
What is said to those responsible for acts against God's laws?
It is always man whose will endorses the killing of daughters and sons
How can a nation long endure when they profane the words of a holy one?
Those who do not have children to lose and refuse to speak
How can a soul be saved, if we do not allow it the time to seek?
