A lot of words around to define what we'd like to express, but do some do more harm then good?


A word we know 

But never knew 

A way

But barely do 

And time 

Again we say

Making us 

Take many sides 

That neither win 


We call sovereign 

Cut off meaning 

From each state 

Stifle people 

From each other 

Filling them 

With greater hate 


Have become 

Just harassment 

At each gate 

While the people 

And their countries 

All but give 

Into their fate 


Is a word 

Like a weight 

About the neck 

Wear it 

As a yoke 

And it worsens
