Who would be a more voracious fighter?
The genius or the man with nothing left to lose?
Logic may have made bombs
It may have made guns and swords
It may have made tactics used in battle to fight and kill other men
But did logic use them?
Did logic launch the bomb?
Did logic pull the trigger?
Did swing the blade?
Did logic condemn thousands to death?
Logic did none of this
Emotion pressed the button
Emotion shot the man
Emotion ran him through and through
Emotion used heartless strategies in war
What is thought in the face of anger?
What is reason in the face of love?
Given all this I ask you one more time
Who would be the more fearful soldier?
One who can make use of the whole armament?
Or the one whose family was just killed in the blast of a bomb?
Think about this next time you needlessly provoke someone
Or you brag about your skill in a fight
There is someone who has lost more than
Is angrier than you
More madly in love than you
And will always
Hit harder than you.
