Never Ending

Rating: 5.0
We are all cannon fodder
For the beast called 'War'

Wars are constant, on going
Since the dawn of man

All of us, young and old
Warrior's, Battlefield Earth

Where the beast called 'War'
Feeds on blood and gore

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I arrived South Vietnam 11 May 1966 fresh off a Minnesota dairy farm,18 years old. U.S. Army, Radio Operator. Assigned PhuBai, South Vietnam 20 months. Many of my friends did not make it out. I think my mother's prayers saved me from the beast. It has been 48 years, but, the memories last.

Yes sir i agree about the post traumatic experience. It's never easy to be in war, though it seems a pride and honor but put to be in war is not easy. I salute your courage and efforts. Sir your poem is just too good. This is my first war poem i think i have read.

I like 'Never Ending' very much, based as it is on personal experience. A fine photo also.

I am honored to be Darwin's sister as I read one poem after another. Deep, piercing emotions. He is my oldest brother in a family of two boys and 5 sisters. Memories of childhood, working in the fields and family traditions of Christmas joys and parents love. Darwin, you are one of a kind.Thank you for sharing your poems with the world. Wish everyone could read and learn as they do. Love you my dear, dear brother!

A really good photo to go with this poem. The message of 'Never Ending' is, I think, timeless and certainly important today-war is brutal like a beast, tragic, and is it necessary?
