Frontline

by - 3:28 PM


Your bullets are biting me
Someone said you’re the enemy
I look around; I look closely
You are just a lost child
In the wrinkles of a bitter man

Your hatred is killing me
Someone said you’re the enemy
I shake my head; I seize my heart
You are just a fooled pawn
In the chessboard of a liar’s game

Your fear is chasing me
Someone said you’re the enemy
I bend my knees; I pray you see
You are just a dying soul
In the bloody fray of the frontline
