I Can’t Watch the News Anymore

a call to arms

put down your gun
silence your drums
hatred and fear may
rule the hour
but they never win
the long war
come into my arms
let me hold your pain
against my heart
let my love fill
your hollow places
and if bombs drop
take my life
as your shield
i’d rather die here
in open meadow
with the sun’s warmth
on my face
and love in my heart
than live in fear
behind your wall
