My Greatest Victory

I knew that the day you said yes
Was my greatest victory
My greatest legacy
Of my life
When you said yes
That you would take my hand
And would walk with me forever
That you would enter forever
As my wife
From that moment I'd remember
Every tear of sadness
As something to laugh at
As something that would pass
They were a moment in a December
Versus a lifetime of days
For I had eternity
With love that would abide
With a fire that would not die
With a heart ablaze
With love
For you
Side by side we would face
All our days
All our nights
As one
Never to sever
This bond

Mars Is Wrong

It is time we stopped listening
To the Roman god Mars
We don't need another dictator
We don't need another war
We don't need another hero
We don't need more scars
We need to be fed til full
We need to have a job
We need education
We need working cars
Syria Iran and North Korea
Don't need our bombs
Or missile strikes
We don't need to be over there
We don't need to be over there
It is time for peace to be the cause
It is time

"And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."    Isaiah 2:3-4
