Put away the guns

Put away the guns
Put away the carnage in your heart
Put away the just war
for they are not your shields
but blankets of disease;
fold them in half, then in half, then half again
and give them to me for safe keeping;
I will always return them, should you ask
but when your infections clear
and your fevers leave
and the nightmares stop
and you can breathe
you might find yourself looking forward instead of back;
you might never ask, my child
you might never ask
