I Would That The World

I would that the world
would shutter her eyes,
and shake from her mind
these dark, angry skies

delve deep in her soul
and see what lie there,
what cause shall be found
for her current affair

to whom shall she point?
just whom shall she blame,
for the hate and the fear
that rips at her frame?

she finds no one to fault,
as the truth does now dawn,
for she is responsible for
the lines she has drawn

she has shifted her axis
to feel less afraid,
but deep in her core a
new wound she has made

as each of her children
find at night in their dreams,
nothing is ever as real
as it seems

no one party holds claim
to a truth undisputed,
when much of the truth has,
by fear, been deep rooted

I would that the world
would open her eyes,
and shake from her soul
these terrible lies
