With arms held high in suffocating sufferance to the inevitability of war being the final solution to any peace.

Heaven is sought as the final refuge to finding a release!

Truth died when freedom was lied to!

Pray to die before the lie takes hold and eats innocence in the first blast.

Praying it’s not your life lost, but that yours will last,

Until the futility of man overcomes greed and insecurity,

Not by a war on peace, but a peace sustained without human debris.

Ah, but to dream the unreachable, to touch God’s knowledge and ask why!

War has no place for the innocent, it’s a hell in which to die!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.

    that a few of us survived
    and now we get to thrive
    for in the end
    life will mend
    and if we only look a little further
    beyond the emptiness of war
    we may finally see and surrender
    to the peace that is not far
    but instead, has always being
    part of us
