War of Misunderstood Confusion

by Eibutsina   Sep 28, 2006


An introduction to the principle
In depth understanding of our faith
A distinction between the teachings
And cultural aspects of our society
Life
Views
Status
Worship
Mysticism
Whilst the media portrays it as terrorism
Can you catch the lies in their attitude?
Towards our chosen way of life
Our opinions dismissed as corrupt
Debased
Lacking
Biased
Irrelevant
We are shocked by these ill mannered tactics
Advertising a promoted intolerance
Yet still our majority is charitable
Do you not see how patronizing it is?
How it simply may irate the few zealots
All the more until it creates a risk
A mess of dangerous politics
So we hold tight to the rope of God
Never letting an inch falter
Remembering the mercy He has bestowed upon us
And pray His blessing on our enemy
Those who choose to believe what they hear
Not seek the education and knowledge for themselves
For the faith we hold so dear promotes
That He will unite our hearts with love
And that only by His grace
Will our once enemies becomes our brothers.

I, for one

Will not face away from people in scorn
Nor walk about the earth exultantly
For this is my straight path
My every solace, my breath
My very reason to keep going to live
And I refuse to follow any lead
Which shall draw me from my path
A path which teaches
Goodness and evil can never be equal
But I shall repay evil with the better of my heart
I shall accept that once enemy as an intimate friend
And shall this war of misunderstood confusion come to an end.
