What is war?

By 8th October 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

Life is lost and people cry
Why so many have to die
War causes such bitter pain
Loved ones never seen again
Ask the ones what they saw
They will tell what is war
Pain, blood many lives lost
War is nothing but human cost
Death and suffering all around
So many bodies buried underground
Even me who ended up blind
Cannot wipe the memories from their minds
Comrades, friend’s brothers and all
They saw them fight they saw them fall
The blood the tears the sad goodbyes
Cannot stop their crying eyes
