The Unholy War - Poem by Peter Nwadike

It was all calm and peaceful
They lived and enjoyed paradise
Until there was a rebellion
A side had to be taken
And many went with the Light
And were accused of treason
Brave soldiers they were
But being outnumbered they lost
And were cast out of the kingdom
No pardon was granted
They became victims
Of an unholy war
And were excommunicated
With no hope of forgiveness
An abyss became their new home
There they dwell in darkness
Scars on their beautiful wings
Memoirs of a lost unfair battle
They mourn by day and weep at night
And forever watering the land
With dark remorseful tears
