The Death Wall

By this wall I me stand
Maurader soldier, a gun in his hand
What bravery to kill me, an innocent man
While I pray where even God does not stand

Wall to my back holes never to fill
The world must know, hatred never lies still
Inside a dark heart where evil mines until
My blood turns cold as only a sure death will

I never spoke other than the truth
Minding my store, remembering my youth
What happened to laughter, children and Ruth
She was taken away, just as hope was an untruth

I cried after the bullet skies did bleed
Falling forward, the ground met my need
To be buried, let Yahweh finish the deed
We are chosen, but who would want my seed?
