While We Weep

We wage these wars
of violence
with promises
of paradise and peace
waiting in the wings
all the while.

How many veils of chaos
must be peeled
from the illusion
before a final layer
of truth
will be revealed
at the core
of consciousness?

We drop these bombs
with innocence
in ignorance.
We dig these graves
with tears
in kind.
