Coward

Why this veil, show your face
Don't hide behind the window pane
Come face to face then you will win
Or people will say you are insane
Don't throw arrows from behind
What you gain to see them bleed
Don't shed blood of innocents
When the war is with someone else
What do you gain being a coward
Don't say that you are a friend
With your smile don't kill
Do something worth for a thrill

A thoughful poem thanks for sharing.
Cowards come in many forms. Some weak by disposition. Others are weak by taking advantage of others through power and deception. The first may be forgiven and pitied but those in the latter must be unmasked and named for what they and their crimes are.....bravo Rini, well done!
Don't shed blood of innocents When the war is with someone else What do you gain being a coward.. problems of sincerity and hiding behind a veil in relationships.. thank u dear poetess. tony
