Operation Struggle

It’s been a struggle Life turns upside down on a whim And rights itself in intervals Today was a good day, tonight makes me want to run away News media flashing images of war Sparking memories untold Praying for safety for everyone friend and for Land, oil, money, power All more addictive than opiods It’s…
