Wars End - Poem by Gordon Jackson
The troops are coming home.
They say the war is over.
Could this be their lucky day?
Is this their four leaf clover?
Give praise to all those Soldiers.
Who fought with so much pride.
Was all that fighting worth it?
Worth the price of those who died?
Don't think of them as Soldiers
But Sons, Brothers, Husbands and Wives
And for some, they are no more
They fought and gave their lives.
War is never a good thing.
Whatever the reason may be.
Fighting for a piece of land
Or to keep our country free.
So now the war has ended.
And the world's a safer place.
For the child who lost their Dad,
There's only sadness in their face.
Ten years of fighting a war.
Ten years for the war to end.
All that pain and suffering,
How long will that take to mend?
Stop the threat of terrorism
That's why we will fight and die.
To 'Keep this country free'.
That will be our battle cry.
Hopefully one that we won't need
We pray to the almighty Lord.
For now, after all this time,
Let's stop dying by the sword.
Dedicated to all those who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thank You for keeping America free.
