TROUBLED MIND

Find your conscience
Console your friend
Keep your sanity
Will we ever learn?

Fight in war
Fight for peace
Keep your sights on the objective
What does it all mean?

Competing feelings
Moral views changing
Feelings of remorse
What is the right answer?

Hunting, tracking
Planning, hiding
Fighting, killing
Is this the answer?

A merciful God
Demanding demons
Souls marching toward hell
Which is the right path?

A nightmare in war
A dream of a nervous night
Memories of confusion
Were we that young and in war?
