Feeling Of War - Poem by Rage'n Curtis

We march in thousands
our footsteps pound.
The innocents flee
from the thought of the sound.

Thoughts rushing through
each soldier's mind.
Standing in their long
wide lines.

Each person wondering
how time is so fast.
It dosent stop for any man,
killing memories from the past.

They draw their swords and shields,
staring nervously at their foes.
Each army baring armor
they use in place of clothes.

Suddenly silence scapes the land
as the warriors prepare to kill.
Just at the moment not a sound is
heard, everything is perfectly still.

But right in the instant the two armies
charge, where they will soon colide.
Like the ocean crashing into a shore,
a strong moving water tide.

All blood runs dry and all
are dead when the battle comes to end.
I wish we could all just stop the wars
and find a way to mend.

    Wow, this is pretty deep...and real...and blunt.
    It's depressing, but eye-opening.
    Simply put, it's good...

    a war of depression
    can make even me with a heart of love
    fall to the ground
    nobody should feel the pain of war

    make more poems to touch me and the world

    that was so beautiful (well not the part about people dying) the way as i read each line i could see the war playing like amovie in my head, like i could see the thousands of people and the looks on their faces and their armor in the way it looked when people fought wars back oh so long ago and i really can't describe this poem with any other word than beautiful! ! ! ! ! ! ! amazing job! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    I love the feeling of anxiety threaded through it, like they are not just killing machines, but men in fear. But there is also an iron bravery there. Fantastic! :) (Report)Reply
