Commited To Life

I'll be honest with you
I hate war in all it's forms -
Physical, psychological, spiritual emotional environmental
I hate war
And I hate having to struggle - I honestly do
Because I wish I had been born into a world when this is not necessary
This context of struggle and being a warrior and being a struggler
Has been forced on me by opression
Otherwise I would have been a sculptor or a gardener
Carpenter - you know, I would be free to be so much more
I guess being part of me or part of who I am, a part of what I do
Is being a warrior - a reluctant warrior, a reluctant struggler
But I do it because I am committed to life
We can't avoid it We can't run away from it
Because to do that is to be subservient to devils
Subservient to evil and so that the only way to live on this planet with any human dignity at the moment is to struggle
