Dear Violence,

Please help me understand
Your place in this world
We live in peace for the most part
But it never lasts for long
You come thundering in
Like a wild herd of elephants
And your trample the weak
And lift up the strong
On your broad shoulders
You help men and women
Aim their cold guns
At innocent hearts
With your bloody hands
You steady the swords
Of the frail hearted
With rasped words of hate

So, answer for me
One simple question
Where did you come from?
Where will you go?
What is your purpose?
You solve no problems
You better no conflicts
If anything, you make them worse
And around you
Injury and pride reigns supreme
You are the reason
So many lives are lost
Everyday

This was good. I liked how you personified violence. And ecspeacailly how you gave him bloody hands. But there is one problematic area. You ask violence to answer one simple question then ask three. Just saying.
