Colin F. Jones


If I was made by God then my defects,
Are His to bear for I caused them not myself,
Though this logic a truer thought reflects,
Such is kept hidden on the dusty shelf.
Man makes war not to claim the peace,
But yet to live as he might choose to do,
Of this life he holds a temporary lease,
For all his days on Earth are very few.
The rights he claims are not rights at all,
For a right to life depends on other men,
You live to fight or you fight and fall,
Where are the rights to make such choices then?
To believe a flame is cold cools not the fire,
And changes not the truth of its attire.
