Ishmael’s Eyes

Ishmael’s Eyes

I am a little boy

Holding a loaded gun

Still here as world spun

Unseeing my deadly toy


I am a little girl

Hiding in the dark

Afraid to light a spark

Darkness threatens to swirl


I am a woman

Crying for the downed slain

Screams echo but no one hears pain

Is this part of God’s plan?


I am a man

Judged for my faith

Souls screech with wraith

Symbols of hate I ban


I am the enemy

Wanting to journey home alone

Leave behind men’s stone

Trusting in ignorance’s infamy

      If more people were willing to face the truth about the world around us then it could change into something much better. Thank you. 🙂
