Are we really independent,
Or are we blindly believing
The lies being told us by warmongers
Lusting after death and destruction?
Is there autonomy between
What the lying politicians say
And the important truths we're hopefully
Coming to learn about war versus peace?
Are we choosing life rather than death
Or are we ignorantly condoning murder,
Blindness not making us any less guilty
For our complicity in the endless slaughter?
Is there the seeking of separation
From the senseless, inhumane carnage,
And only standing for blessed peacemaking,
That mercy which glorifies humankind?
Are we the merciful who are the only ones'
God will have mercy upon in the very near future,
Instead of the unmerciful who will be condemned
As they themselves condemned the weak and innocent?
Where lay our true days of independence?
