With Violence As Your God

syria-image

To hallucinate from reality, not excepting the truth.

To live a life of fantasy, in the mind of a youth.

To hide your mind from darkness, seeing only what shines.

Is to worship an evil God, who speaks from a false shrine.

Some see uniformity as a barrier to their own way

Some see inequality as the terror that rules the day.

Death by some is preached as a way to free the oppressed.

Others hide their feelings, never wanting them expressed.

The young and old have values, some shared, some kept apart.

But the young and old share one thing; they each have a heart.

A heart should be beating with love and not to the tune of hate.

To all who preach violence I say;” first accept it as your own fate!”

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 although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. 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.
