War Poem

Well I wrote this poem after seeing some of the damage that was happening in Iraq. It was very heartbreaking to see all the people and children suffering over there. And I just kept thinking that there were other ways that we could resolve this, so why were we doing such drastic things? My heart goes out to the people, I hope that the war ends soon at least for the sake of the innocent people over there.

Stop All The Blood


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011 with permission of the Author.

Restrain your anger
And run to find some shelter
Flames and eruptions
Are their only reactions
Comrads and brothers
Are facing the slaughter
They will not surrender
To them you are the offender
Stop all the blood
They've had enough
If you keep fighting
People will keep dying
There's got to be another way
Without causing pain every day
Vengeance and sorrow
Will be yearning tomorrow
Twenty more years remain
Until we can conquer their reign
It seems never ending
As it ends everything
When will you learn that
There are other ways to combat
There are only two outcomes here
And each of them is very severe
You can either rise victorious
And to them you will be glorious
But just as you can rise, you can fall a failure
After all that you had to endure
It's not worth going through
when there are other things you can do
