Dona Nobis Pacem

Would it suffice you
were I to offer my heart
bleeding and raw
precisely removed
in the surgery
you have created
in this cage
of our lives
Would it suffice you
were I to lay down my life
in the battles
you deem worthy
to gain what you seek
Or would you require my soul
burning within
caught between the walls
you build and build and build
of your banalities
and your endless reasons
and your demigods
of logic and theology
