sadness that the wars cause

Silent tears fall at night
due to terror and fright
all emotions just come out
all you want to do is just shout

tears of happiness and pure joy
could be something simple like a brand new toy
but there is always a reason for those tears
like having a parent home could help those fears

they could have been fighting in afghanistan or iraq
its so emotional when you finally have them back
even though its the end of the iraq war
we should remember the ones who aren't here anymore

people are still fighting in afganistan
if only if there was a no war ban
so people wouldn't have to die
for the country they love and there families wouldn't have to cry

    When a democratic country wages a war against another, be it democratic or not, the world thinks that the war is waged with the consent of the people, since the country is run by a democratic government. But how far it is true is anybody's guess. Poets do not make national policies and those who do, usually do not have a poet's mind. Hence the troubles, the conflicts. (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
