No Time For War

No Time For War

In the silence in the shadows
In the deepest grave that’s ever been,
Lives the voice of all reason
In the world no-one’s seen.

Memories will be rewritten with no pain left inside.
Tears will be forgotten. There was no time when you cried.

In the valleys deep and darkened
In the nightmares, in the screams
Lives the Devil that needs fighting
Fill those shadows with your dreams.

Memories will be rewritten with no pain left inside.
Tears will be forgotten. There was no time when you cried.

From the dawning of the sunrise
To the dwindling dusk of night
Think not of inky skies above you
Fill those shadows with your light.

Memories will be rewritten with no pain left inside.
Tears will be forgotten. There was no time when you cried.

In the world that’s been constructed
In a life you can claim
There’s no darkness of the memories
There’s no memories of the shame.

Memories will be rewritten with no pain left inside.
Tears will be forgotten. There was no time when you cried.

Persecution is forbidden
Hypocrisy is no more
Love is unchanging
In the dream you’ll be living there’s no time for bloody war.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was 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 most about; 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 and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

    I am glad I came across you, young ur poems ( almost lyrics ) are deep and sensitive.
    I will let this Day for now but still quote 2 of your lines.
    “Think not of inky skies above you
    Fill those shadows with your light.”
