as many a flag flutters under our Creator's soothing breeze?
under trumpeting horns
led by warring ideologies
The battle will continue for
or about to be born.

in the past century,
died in war's casualties

on mankind's streets
this does make.
How many more lives are at stake?

What about Jeremiah's words under Holy Spirit spoken?
"I well know, O Jehovah, that man’s way does not belong to him. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step."

during thundering reigns.
The plains left scattered
with our youthful remains.
it keeps ticking
Still in spin.
When will we realize, this struggle will end?
Not under man's Sovereignty.
