You Cannot Know

You Cannot Know

                                                               Out of Time ~ Philip Brent Harris



It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth.


Another mass shooting in the United States.
Whether on the battle field or living our daily lives,
we are at war. Will this be the day you will die or I will die
because we allow gutless, greedy people to decide how we will live?
You cannot know, nor can I.


We need never raise our voices.
That would hardly be civilized.
We’re not talking death or war,
not even talking rumors of war,

simply calculating profit and loss.
Guns sales as profits, lives as loss.
It is only criminal if we’re caught,
when at war; so when are we not?

Yours are the lives we will claim.
They’ve always been ours anyway.
We will forever be up on the top,
as Earth falls down, a wobbly top.

So, please breathe deeply and relax.
Got’cha’s the best, when you relax.
Not good for you; it is good for us,
since you cannot know it’s coming.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
