Why Are You Warring?

What are we going to do?

Life says no more frontline war zones

to combat the enemy

The line is fused

between public and private

The war is tuned

to hit everyday people

in everyday societies

Just need to detect a man

without combat uniform

yet who likes to invade

a person’s private world

and weaponize his words

to ruin one’s character and prospects

He then will turn on

those he loves

and then turn upon unknown strangers

destroying himself and all

good that was built

Why Are Warring?
Why Are Warring? | Source

No source of information

is a source of truth

Much of what is said

Is untrue but made

to sound believable

This is propaganda

Flummoxing each person

at your side, in your community

and in your country

The lines between private and public

are fused

where the so-called country protectors

or killers walk amongst the innocence

Psychological warfare

is to cause us to doubt


to turn upon each other

and fight with one another

What is one step I can rebuild trust where I need to today?

Those in power

just laugh with glee

at how clever they are

at puppeteering us to this end

What are we going to do?

What are you going to do?

Eat our own tails?

As the hate drip feeds

us in the name

it is “good for us

and is keeping us safe”

Can you choose to pause

and step ahead

with a questioning mind?

To see if it is

genuine misunderstandings

or, a riot caused by a malevolent mind

wearing a good gal or good guy cap?

Trust | Source

Our trust and desire

for goodness and betterment

has been used for misdeeds

There is nothing we can do about

the past

only today counts

as it will be our tomorrow

So, when someone is clever

or resourced to tap

into your real

or hidden fears

ask yourself why?

do they need to do that

in the first place?

Stealth and cunning is

underway in our culture

eating away all that has

been built up for the good

Be mindful

don’t fall for either the ones

that hate you upfront

Don’t fall for the ones that gain

your trust or friendship

as they will have a black-hearts

and will use your personhood

to erode your goodness

There is no fail-safe way

to discern

except be questioning

and trust with caution

Wars and conflict

start because of

economic desires

territorial gain

religious forces

nationalistic ideas

revenge for justice

civil war

revolutionary war

and defensive war

Main cause of war

is poor communication

Main cause of war

is when someone forces you

to act against your better judgement

While we are forced to deal

with warring minds

we may still need to act

the Pollyanna way

Decide what is your higher refined

life purpose

and make it happen

on a day to day basis

Keep imagining

to see through the eyes

of another especially

when you hate to do so

because you will

still be able to see

feel and understand another

If talking wearies you


Where you can be mindful

of how your words

or actions could affect another

as this will also affect you

Where and when you can

learn the art of taming

the lion’s jaw of you

and another.

      We need change. What shape that will come in, I don't know. But we need to reprioritize and it cannot about be solely about the "I" within the leaders. It will be interesting to see who or what our younger leaders will be.

      Yes, "A War a Day Makes You Work, Rest and Play" when it is warning against mis-information imposed on anyone to make them submissive to others.

      No, "A War a Day Makes You Work, Rest and Play" doesn't allow one th pleasures of rest and play when it is directed at another person in defense of mis-information imposed on one.

      Before the elimination of war between warrior on a war-field separate from the dwellings of the families, elders and children except for those who had loved ones in war they could "rest and play" but what you've described is something new devised to destroy whole societies and/or nations which doesn't allow anyone the comforts of "Rest or Play."

      There is only one answer and that is world peace which can only happen if/when money is removed from being "The Object of Desire."

      A well written revelation of today's mentally distorted leaders. Thanks for the reminder that change is necessary and must come soon.
