My Feelings about war and those involved.

War can be started by creative
bending minds, which strategize
and manuver life vessels

Brothers fight against brother,
family against family, mankind
against each other

Frontline soldiers seek refuge
in fox holes, bunkers, trenches.
Some lay broken, bleeding,pierced
by gernades, mortars, gunfire

Those amoung the dead lie in
the midst of devastation,
ungraced by ineptitude,bureaucracy
and hypocrisy,as battles continue

Suicide attacks by human bombs
are waged on unsuspecting soldiers, civilians,children.Wasted loss of life for the for the merciless,
dedicated, innocents and pure
of heart.

Rhythms of unmelodious beats
echo through war zones as
rapid gunfire continues

Twisted metal, splintered wood,
archaic damaged buildings, stand
as grim reminders of past decotage'

Death and destruction are hand in hand as the war continues with its
deadly toll

Peace remains an eventuality.
The promise of new tomorrows can be shaped by human hands ( if its
allowed to happen)...

War,always a shadow that haunts our existance. Always a million reasons for it. Yet why can not the voice of reason be heard and understood before hate turns to war. Powerful words, Mary.

War is dirty and nasty, it always has been and will continue to be in the future. It was not meant to be pretty. Unlike movies though, the good guys do not always win......

Be safe,
