Milk and honey

Still fighting the war,
is this what life is
and if so
what for?

battles to win?
triumphs and then we
begin to believe
that it’s over
and it’s not yet begun.

making the picture bigger
turning the gun
and pulling the trigger
but
no one wants to make that mistake.

never full of doom and gloom
there’s always room for more,
still fighting the war,
what are you doing today?
