"Blood will not be forgotten"


Blood Offering

Whose story is history?
The story of those who won
Of how they killed the others

Yet it is no mystery
Each combatant is a son

Victors and defeated die
Each of those sons have mothers
Whose history knows no lie

See the weeping mother bring
Vengeful tears to rain upon
Victors in blood offering?

Forgotten she is not gone

Her son's blood is her glory
When books as flesh lie rotten
Her story is this story:

Blood will not be forgotten

This is a very powerful poem.

These are good words about a horror that mankind has not controlled. Until the time when we no longer have wars, we honor and remember kindly those who spilled their blood for country and cause. Thank you for this most difficult to write work. I applaud you. - Bill

A piece that will be ageless. There are many stories behind this one poem...One about Christ and his mother and clearly about the young soldiers of many wars with their mothers tears washing over her sons body. Then there could be a meaning of "Mother" as our country, crying over the bloodshed going on during a war. Very deep and worth the read. Thanks for sharing>

What can I say...

Brother Steven, if people had any feelings they would sympathize and understand this mother's story, instead of writing off her painful story as history...



Unfortunately, humanity has lost its bearing, there was a time when it was perfectly normal to empathize with the weak and the down trodden, but today...God help those who voice their concerns.



Your courage and ability to go against the tide is commendable! A beautiful expression of brotherhood and solidarity!

Always your friend, Safi

Powerful and timeless!

Reviewed by Franziska Brueggerhoff 6/29/2006
Blood means life, life flows into history - bringing us a thousand tales, a thousand wonders, each valued equally, each having its own story

Brilliantly written
