Treasure Island

Cody Stephen Heldak

(August 9th 1991 / Chicago)

War is...


War is fighting brothers,
War is bombs exploding,
War is crying mothers,
War is bodies floating.

War is following orders,
War is young dated,
War is falling mortars,
War is time wasted.

War is mixed blood,
War is true sadness,
War is wet mud,
War is ultimate madness.

War is innocent deaths,
War is many tears,
War is unwelcomed guests
And they all last for years.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson
