War Why?

©

Published: June 2008

Hurt, pain, suffering, people are dying
What's going on we're both crying
Guns, hand grenades and bombs too
People running scared they don't know what to do
Most people run, most people hide, most people crawl
But the slow people only fall
War is here, war is here, war is here
It's like a bad man's happy cheer
What's happening? what made all this start?
People who are killing obviously have no heart
Children scared, they call for mum and dad
They're calling for the people they now not have
The gun shots go all day and night
The fighters hold their positions tight
People have come to help, come to save them all
But they too turn and fall
So now don't close your eyes
See and feel all the suffering people's cries
They need our help, they need a hand
They need people like you and me who can understand
So get up off your couch
Put on a uniform and don't slouch
Learn the rules of a fair fight
Help the bad people know what's right
War has come to end
war has come to end

I can see what you write and totally agree with you, I may not be in a war but my family lived in Iraq until my brother got killed there. His family lives now in Netherland but they still have a trauma and we all are still grieving over his death.
Thanks for this story.

War is a very sad time and I hope it would end soon. When God comes back there will only be peace. Hooray!
