Dead Bodies

It’s deep to see,
A lifeless body,
Whose headless body has a fountain of blood gushing out of it.

It’s deep to see,
Numerous dead bodies,
Making themselves islands on their own blood.

It’s deep to see,
A lifeless body

    It's deep to see, and I don't pray to see.
    well expressed, good job.

    you've got some talents, don't know what inspired you to write but I saw the flow in the message from either war or violence

    The poem is brief but contains in itself the whole human history, millions and millions of men and women have been killed in the wars and no issue has been resolved yet. It is the duty of all poets to make aware that a single dropp of human blood possesses more worth than all treasures that the Earth contains.
    Regards
