    To the left is white
    To the right is black
    Yet I'm here in between.

    Voices shouting,
    Crying, Lying.
    My path is yet unseen.

    They pick up arms
    They threaten war
    My single voice unanswered.

    I cry for peace
    I cry for love
    A razored-edge dancer.

    The buttons gleam
    On both their desks
    Both hovering their hands.

    A world at risk
    and withheld breath,
    Prayers for our great lands.

    Childish I say to thee
    That grown men do such things.
    No care for the pain and loss
    That such a decision brings.

    That pain is not their own.
    That loss to them means nothing.
    It's all a game they want to play.

    Who owns the most,
    Who seems the best?
    "Neither!" as I say.

    What good is this
    When the land turns black?
    When the rivers can't run clean?

    Still they posture
    Still they dance.
    Uncaring broken men they seem.

    good points on war and philosophy as well, I think this poem needs more length and description, but still as I read it the poem left me satisfied with the content
