Treasure Island

Mary Deng

(9/11/1991 / Addis Ababa, Ethiopia)

War is not good, absolutely nothing!

war! war!

Why do we have to fight?
People are dieing because of the war,
War is not good, absolutely nothing.

Death here, death there,
Parents are lost, dreams are lost,
Children are lost, brightness is lost.

War brings darkness,
War destroys happiness,
War brings GENOCIDE.

War overtakes peace,
And replaces it with conflict,
War is not harmony.

War brings greediness,
War brings depression,
War is not good, absolutely nothing.

    well Arya, there are two diferrent types of war, there is one u kill for pleasure and one u kill for freedom. i have a dad in army i can't say thats war is good or bad, but to me fight is not a good thing. like it or not! thats my view! (Report) Reply

    War is were I will be going...I am going to fight in Iraq. That is my dream. What you don't realize is with out our soldiers we would be attacked from all four sides by our enemies..If thats the kind of life you want then fine...But WAR is my life. Its what I was born to do. I am a girl but that doesn't matter I would happily pick up a sword and kill a hundered people so that we the US may live in peace. War is........FREEDOM. (Report) Reply
