To the Terrorists

I am no terrorist
I will not succumb to hate
God & I will decide my fate
I will not live in fear
I will not give you that satisfaction
all infractions
to incur are yours
and yours alone
your karmic retribution
will scour you to the bone

what will you say to your God
when he asks you, “WHY?”
and don’t think that he wont
because god does not condone
hatred, or murder

and that’s what you are
hateful murderer
nothing less
and certainly nothing more
