"I can sum up everything I've learned about life in three words; it goes on." -Robert Frost

in god's name we trust.
as he watches his troops die trying to defend his name,
he waves his hand over our land and stakes his claim-
on OUR souls
and on OUR freedom
while watching from his throne.
we will cry to him in hopes of peice that never will be known.
