A Soldier's Regret - Poem by Nikhil Singh
Color rises with me into the sky
Am I dead or just dreaming?
What drug has penetrated my will?
What is this tuneless screaming?
This man, is he my creator?
Or is he an imposter like the rest?
I know not if amnesia burdens me
Or if this is some untimely test
Is there a moral difference between two extremes?
Or do I blindly follow what is said?
Is this apathy or just confusion?
Too long have I fought and bled
Why should I fight for this country,
With only the benefit of a likely death
Peace and permanence
Can not be uttered in the same breath
I fought for peace through violence
What sense governs such actions?
Only now have I realized
Why the world is formed in fractions
As yet they strive for peace through war
I have attained enlightenment
Away from their eternal conquest for superior firepower
No longer am I enslaved by their establishment
The only peace is power
Superiority is respect
Was this earth's intended path?
Or is this world a defect?
Am I over-reacting? No
I simply ask this: Is all truth gone from this place?
If so, please give me my unemployment cheque
And I will move to find solace.
