For Armistice Day


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
It's two years since I posted this short poem for Armistice Day and since it's Armistice Day tomorrow 11th November as it is each year and always remembered too on the following Sunday, I thought it was an apt time to re-post this re-mastered version.
I wrote this for Soldiers of all wars who died for their Country in the face of danger and/or against opression and injustice. It's a poem that says that even the people who caused the wars can be forgiven, but only when they come to understand their wrongdoing and ask for forgiveness. It's saying that we will ALL be brought to account at some point.

A Poem for Armistice Day

As sure as they who had to fall, failed to flee the bullets call,
So too shall they who caused this woe, still have to answer and to know,
That when they come to Gods’ great hall,
All sorrowed hearts will know their gall,
But unlike those who plead their case, the ones with love will show their face,
To cleanse them of their sad disgrace, and pull them to their feet again,
To know that justice will be done, when hatred from their heart is gone.
Forgiveness then will surely come, to bind together everyone,
Whose thoughts are righteous, true and good, to live in peace, as all men should.

Maurice Vizard.
