Ode To Peace - Poem by Alexandria Rios

Okay, I would like to share how I got inspiration for this Ode. I was watching the music video 'Wake Me Up When September Ends, ' by Green Day. It really got me thinking of how many people suffer and are simply so patriotic to die for there country or for who they love. Don't worry, this has a great ending. Enjoy my poem!


Guns blazing in the East,
Among the horizon of peace...
We all pray, day by day,
As another soldiers blown away...

Mountains smoking,
Leaving death as a residue in Afghani skies
Drifting words,
All a blur as the soldier goes to another world...

Cries of men and women,
Drowned out by bombs and gun shots...
The sky turns a bright red,
Reflecting this horrible, dreaded scene...

A family, awaiting the arrival of the loved one in war,
Has tears, streaming with joy...
They fall in, and give a group hug,
Being careful not to hurt the wounded arm...

Just a scratch in war,
But a scar for life...
A smile comes upon his face,
As he sees his little girl with a sign of peace...
