This Is War - Poem by Cassie Lee

For this is war
when a once vacant field has turned blood red
when every man is nearly dead
when the sky above has turned black
For this is war
there is no going back.

For this is war
when men crawl back to there base
when empty tears are pourring down their face
when machine guns have stolen every last breath
For this is war
and war is death.

    Excellent honest write. Sadly it is true, yet so many people don't realize how costly war is in this regard. (Report) Reply
