War Is Not Ever The Right Answer

I’ve heard stories

I’ve read history

I’ve seen the news

I know the ins and outs

I know the twists and turns

I never understood the concept

War was never the answer

Not for any country nor any continent

I’ve seen children mutilated

I’ve seen sisters raped

Through histories words

I walked into timelines of anger

Timelines of wanton slaughter

Crossed borders and oceans

Watched them bomb away countless innocent lives

War is never asked by the people

War sowed hatred and division

I can’t help but be sad

Lads drafted into the army

Women watch their man go

Never to see them come back

Widows weep alone in the night

War is never the answer

It never was

It never will be

Wise Poets

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses... We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth. — John F. Kennedy

As I walk around I like to record what I experience. Through poetry, ideas and thoughts I hope I can share some of these experiences with you.
