War - Poem by william Dadeah Jr.
(Is not much to say war can be?
But unlike a soldier his heart can see)
If only I knew war and all it flaws
I will be kind enough to make peace
With every little things aside
In the clouds, in the streets and all voids
That no matter what famine and murder does
A role will be play in each part it fades
But it is hard to believe that is a crime
On earth, for whatever cause we stray
From common mistake we face in life
Is a long journey I continue to comprehend?
Evil and good among soldiers
What war make and bring I know not
But who has experience more than a wounded man
Lying down with no arms or legs
War makes wonder, war makes despair
Even the unborn lacks air
When mothers cry river in fear
That her lads are fighting on dead grounds to be free
But for heaven sake, I implore thee
That I live not to be blind, but to see
War dispel like a falling seed
