The end doesnt justify the means

Peace keepers sent to foreign lands
Helping not with outstretched hands
But with killing machines

The end doesnt justify the means

Welfare to help the unemployed
On which people live, for free...overjoyed
Which my money supports, why was the harm not seen?

The end doesnt justify the means

The way this world is sometimes
Never ending, increasing crimes
To calm my nerves, I need caffiene

The end doesnt justify the means


This is my 50th post I beleive. I never thought I would stay here when I first saw this site. But I found that you people are like a second family. Thank you for all your support and I hope to stay here for a long time.

Hi Lucius Cade,

This has some very good points in it, and makes you think, thank you.

And were very glad to have you here, it is one big family.

Very wonderful poem, though I'm a bit late in the reply.  The title caught my attention, for I've heard the argument that "Everything is moral if the ends justify the means."  I never really did like that... and I really enjoyed reading a poem from someone else who believes the same as myself.



 Sometimes the most important things can't be seen with the eyes, but are rather felt with the heart.
