No Place to Hide

My theme of choice lately is just that: “choices“. Life often seems random, and we sometimes feel as though we’re extras in a movie we don’t even like. But I believe it’s more than that, and we can alter the course of our lives–even the lives of others–when we make the right choices.

No Place to Hide

We see the reports almost daily

A bomb here, an explosion there

A lunatic with a gun or a knife

Just wanted to see what it was like to kill

 

Someone decided to “make a statement”

For “the cause”

And those they killed or maimed

Were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time

 

The war between good and evil rages

One side seeks to kill and destroy

The other mourns and wonders why

There is no fence to walk… no place to hide

evil tide quote
