Rationalised resentment

Tell me these lies are all true.
These walls are all needed.
Tell me this feeling will pass.
And I can look away with a clear heart.
And that my hands were always meant to be red.
And these souls, these people were always meant to be dead.

  1. This is an excellent piece : tragic, yet excellent. It is, perhaps, easy to lay the blame for war at another’s door, but we must question our complicity in war.
    Then again, is there a way to end conflict that doesn’t involve conflict?

    • I agree, and even our own personal wars are just a microcosm of the larger ones on the world stage. We can all change how we are and unstitch the thread of conflict. And Gandhi certainly thought there was 🙂
