The things done in times of war
are not part of reality.
the killings, the treachery and more,
are not part of human sanity.

The grief that comes from such plight,
will live longer than ones soulful life.
and while rights and wrongs are clearly in sight,
the killings won't stop from the guns and the knife!

But once it is over and done,
regret reminds us each day.
It matters not that the war was won,
only that we must find another way!

You are absolutely right! NO ONE wins a war! There is only loss of life and ruin! I agree there must be another way! Good job on this poem.
