Poems about war

Diatribe on War

The soul never sleeps
It see's adolescent behavior on a big scale
Once more the arms of war on sale
I detest violence vehemently
I stamp my tantrum feet as a child relentlessly
Even in my dreams little respite
From the apprehensive dread of the devil's bite
Severe mercy
Transcendental meditation
Transpersonal dissociation
More war, sordid whore
Catatonic heap defaces the floor
Oh remorse and entreaties
Oh despair and wringing
Oh come love bringing!

Layers and layers of phenomena
Mysteries ever abound
Yet our untimely knuckles drag the ground
Incomprehensible inscrutable invidious bile
Damnable war never rests a while
I've come to expect its a natural state
Will humanity always regard it as ho hum fate
I try to look away, fain smiles, reply "I'm fine"
The deception is for them
I really want to die
No more war, no more lies
Oh remorse and entreaties
Oh despair and wringing
Oh come love bringing!

diatribe,  war.

( ... on the brink of the Third World War ... )


( hate to disturb the party but

If you look out the window

You'll see everyone running around killing each other )


Turning up the volume on the t v

Won't help

: : : : :

: : : : :

We are only the children really

What can we even hope to do?



I'm not saying there IS an answer

But I'm bound to SEE IT clearly

: :

And to be ready for THE CALL


We are only children really

So we should be pure of heart


We are the children of the world


brink,  third,  war.

The Nature of War

The nature of war blooms bullets and bombs
In battlefields of glory
That quickly turn into gardens of grief
Rained down upon with the blood of innocence
Lost to hate fueled by years of violence breeding violence
And the coffins fall in place as the body count marches on
And spit shine the corpse for the beautiful parade
For the heroes of war and the soldiers of peace
Who sleep with the horrors of what they've seen
And the horrors of what they've done
Tucked away tight and safe
Inside name brand body bags and precisely folded flags
And what victory can be seen
In the tears of a mothers heart
Or the pride in a fathers eyes
And the nature of war blooms on
As the cannons keep roaring
And the political speakers keep up
The rhetoric of violent ballets of misinformation
To keep the war machine grinding
The bones of new enemies
With the same old perpetuated propaganda
To keep the masses foaming at the mouths
To dress up in uniforms of legalized murder
And the casual lie
Of the freedom everyone is fighting for
And it's the iron fist that controls the land of the free
And it's the strong arm of might
Making everything alright with the nature of war

nature,  war.

There's a war.
Miles away it's
Being fought.
& all the proof
Is what we see,
The images
Unfolding on the
Screens & we're
Made to feel
The unease.
The empathy &
Uncertainty &
Hopeless inevitability.
But the
Unsaid truth
Is that this chaos
Doesn't feel quite
As real as
The one closer to
Home. the one that
Doesn't border a
Town, but a head
& heart & takes
It down just as hard.

And the child cried out,

ВЂњOh what have I done?
It's World War I
A hell of my own, ”

She's nothing but an instigator
Thinking everybody hates her

It was never meant to go so far
A war she'd hoped would never start

Life throws me a grenade
A lemon if you will
The sourest it could find
I like sour, but still

At some point I need sugar
But the effort is not but strife
So my only option is
To throw the lemon back at life

This Love Is A War

Trust and hope are your soldiers. Don't let them die. Lust is your enemy, make him starve. Words are your weapons, use them with care, few at a time. And, love is the reward for this war.

-Nupur Dua

love,  war.

A disaster Is An Unplanned War.

Welcome to the future, To the past, To the present,
I'll see you tomorrow, I'll see you in heaven,
Like a winner you succeed in the only way you can,
Like all the controversial subject religion tries to ban,
So ill look at your reflection and identify your flaws,
When were are road of imperfections which is always pointing north,
If we were an object we would be a shoelace,
Always left undone, maybe it's better that way.

I'm sorry I didn't realise you can't lend a helping hand,
Since strictly speaking we come from the same place in the sand,
And if we don't help what does that make us,
We don't want the irony behind the words,
Another one bit the dust.
To be true, to be blue I hope it makes you think.
Be the together not the same, My friend.

disaster,  unplanned,  war.
