Poetry about war


 

I saw the morning
It was shattered by a gun
Heard a scream, saw him fall, no one cried
My heart was sadden by this terrible event
It never ends
Never leaves
It just gets worse

I saw two parents
They were praying for their son
Bring him back, let him live, don’t let him die

 
Do you ever ask yourself
Is there a Heaven in the sky?
If there is a heaven in the sky,
Can you listen to me now
Why can’t we get it right?
Why don’t they understand?

 
We all live in the same planet
We all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can’t we live as one

 
I saw the evening
Fading shadows one by one
We watch the lamb, lay down to the sacrifice
I saw the children
The children of the sun
How they wept, how they bled, how they died

Do you ever ask yourself
Is there a Heaven in the sky?
Why can’t we stop the war?
No one wins when it comes to war
So why, why can’t we stop the fight?
In the end, we all end up as the losers

We all live in the same planet
We all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can’t we live as one

Sometimes I think I’m going mad
We’re loosing all we had and no one seems to care
But in my heart it doesn’t change
We’ve got to rearrange and bring our world some love
Bring peace
Bring love, and harmony

And does it really matter
If there’s a heaven up above
We sure could use some love

‘cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can’t we live as one
‘cause we all live under the same sky
We all look up at the same stars
Then why, tell me why can’t we live as one

Dear Stacey, I wish I knew how to stop the madness. People live in different cultures and atmospheres. If we could live in peace I woud be the happiest man on earth. Great poem and full of wisdom. Thank you for sharing. Love Emile

Hang in there, Stacey. There's love all around you. All we have to do is harness it. Maybe one day we'll all gather on the moon and have
this gigantic love-in. -gene.
