A Commandment

A Commandment


In these times of conflict 

people are killed by the day.

Bullets and explosions

claim the lives of many.

Revenge is high on the agenda

for the reason to kill.

Mercy takes a back seat

as terror reigns.

I was once a soldier

many years ago.

I am now mature in years

and am a pacifist.

One of the ten commandments


“Thou shalt not kill”.

Is there any part of this

that people do not understand?

The words and the message

are simple.

These words of scripture

resonate in my soul.
