War And Peace - Poem by joyjit sengupta

The long war was over now
There was an eerie silence in the air
And in the hearts of people
All around

People died on either side
Their homes shattered
And families broken

Who ever thought
War can resolve problems
Did a big mistake
Wars don't end in peace

It was too big a price to pay
Just too many faces simply disappeared
And their voices we shall never hear

Flags were raised on either side
And flags were lowered too
As the guns boomed in royal salute
We made martyrs of our fellow men
A sacrifice without any justification

Their names shall be written on stone
On either side
With flowers and candles, we shall bid them good-bye
Medals of honour shall follow posthumously
Even their names may appear in the pages of history

But what difference does all that make
In the name of peace
We shall fight another war.
