Poetry Tuesday – The War/We

The soldiers we made

The lives that were paid

The battles we waged

The souls we enraged

Because of this war

Well, not anymore

The fields lay silent

Our spirits are bent

The price paid in blood

The boots stained with mud

A mother’s heartache

Crushed in the wake

She cries bitter tears

For all the years

Another child dead

From hatred we bred

The enemy’s face

Is filled with disgrace

When with mirrored eyes

We see past the lies

The war starts within

Because of the sin

Of failing to love

Of rising above

Deceit and despair

And move to repair

Every broken heart

This war tore apart

Dry the tears and see

Not you, not me–we.
