They Feel - by Bob Atkinson

They Feel
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
they feel they're in the right
all tallied, set up finely
thoughts true, until refrain
lays doubt upon their brains

power comes, and power goes
sends will to kill down hill toward those
who allow themselves finite divinity
giving up on their hope of humanity

right and wrong lie somewhere here
between luck and perseverance
not when the strong survive
but when we sift out another's lies

take from those who give
and feel strength of will to hear
what can't be said in public
killing never solves it
