The Winds of War.....

Window panes rattle in agony

as shattered lives explode

into a thousand smithereens.

The winds of war are blowing.


Supposedly these are modern times

where talks of peace are spoken of

yet never solidified into commonsense.

The winds of war are blowing.


Grief unbearable wraps hearts

and blank eyes become downcast

as day after day the world watches.

The winds of war are blowing.


The numb children cease crying

not understanding the cruelty of man

that takes away their futures and dreams.

The winds of war are blowing.


Overhead fly the carrions of greed

releasing their indifference below

without thought, without compassion.

The winds of war are blowing.


Principalities and dark powers

battle it out in the unseen realms

scrapping for dominance to rule, yet

the Winds of Change are coming.....


'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.' [Ephesians 6 v 12]
'You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.' [Matthew 24 v6-8]
