Unknown Minefield

It’s not the unknown minefield
that you have to tread with care
it’s the same old barren wasteland
where the bombs are all laid bare

Because the scars of new explosions
are a potential yet unseen
but the wounds that were inflicted
fuel a pain that is still keen

And it’s for the backwards terror
that we’re all sometimes alive
though bright to future’s danger
is where we all can thrive
