The war hurt my family

The war hurt my family
They were tough as tough can be
First they beat the foreigners
Then they tried to beat me.

My loneliness you can’t understand
It’s like a bullet from a gun
That went astray from the first war
And blotted out the sun.

My granddad was a Methodist
He beat his children black and blue
My daddy was an atheist
Who hated everything I knew.

I want to know peace and love
I don’t want to know war
But the world turns full circle
And falls flat upon the floor.

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
