"The War Inside" - New poem

The War Inside

Dark secrets,
ghosts in the machine,

tool of demise,
the demise of our souls,
who we are at the core.

We never think about the war inside, 

trouble in our minds,
a heart’s conflict.

When the war is over,
what is left?
How do you pick up the pieces of your life?

You just try.
Lift your head up,
your voice will be heard.
Let your conscience be heard till we…

Live better,
Breathe better.

Moral codes are fine,
but to be human is to err.
Forgive first.

That is also important.
