A Worthy Cause.

A Worthy Cause.

A Poem by kjsa
"

I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill-Ghandi

"

Have you found a life worth fighting for?

A cause worthy of a hero's death?

Would you kill for a country

taking advantage of the meek,

or a saint from the street

with a hidden crooked tyrant's eye.


Would you die for your god

one that's never helped you,

or for none so you can rule

a bigoted self-centered cause.


Even in differences

we're all the same

ready to others lives

for a cause not of their own.


We must lay down

our lethal arms

renounce our human nature

embrace fellow humans.

In peace we'll find our

freedom, rights, and souls.

I understand the feeling of wanting to fight for something. I know i would do anything and fight any odds on certain things.
