"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


 Pa, the bullet's in my chest,
But it's not my time to die!

Don't let me leave this world,
I haven't said goodbye!

This war has torn my skin apart,
Has melted all my veins.

And you're in the South Father,
Unaware of my pains.

Will I go to Heav'n dad,
For killing my own brother?

How about my sister's heart,
Or the grief of my mother.

You told me when I was young,
That murder wasn't right.

But now you're against me,
Unwilling to end this fight.

Maybe you've fallen today,
Stuck beneath the mud.

Hand in hand we'll arrive,
Covered in dirt and blood.

I based this off of the Civil War and the effect it had on families with mixed views.
