Our Enemy

Updated: Jun 9, 2020



This was written by my dad, a few days after September 11, 2001. The message seems applicable today, too.. I hope you can appreciate it as much as I do!


We are in a war we cannot win

Nor afford to lose

Our new enemy is one

That we did not choose


He waits around each corner

In the shadows deep and dark

Never in full view

Like swings out in a park


He has come to stalk us down

He is waiting at the gate

Our enemy we cannot see

Our enemy is hate


There is only one way we can fight

This enemy so new

We must all come face to face

Him and me and you


With hands held high and heads bowed low

Search strength from up above

The only way to fight this war

Is seeking God's love
