war

A Poem by soulesswriter
"

one of my poems bout my views on war

"

They say all is fair in love and war

They say war is good

They brainwash us into rooting for violence

I’m not a religious person

But what happened to the days were we were all one

Now we will stand to fight for gods that might not exist

And if they do u think they will want u to fight to see whose god is better

I don’t believe in hell because if there was a hell were living it right now

We see hate every day

We hear about it everywhere

Someone shoot there, someone killed there self here,

People say life is a book with a begin and an end

I say were thinking wrong life has many begins but one end

People r getting in justified every day

Treated bad for what they r or what they like

What happened to the great America were everyone is treated equal

Now I can’t turn on the TV hearing about someone shot, dead, or suicide

We send people to fight a rich man’s war

All life is a big game of chess

People being told what to do and were to go and who to kill

Were all guilty of it

Why is it that people can’t were there heritage wrong who targets them

Why is it we can go into a restaurant without being judged?

Why is it we fight about religion and kill our own kids in war for them?

I’m pretty sure most religions don’t say to kill anyone who dose not believe in your god

To have a religion is to have faith in one thing

Religion is private that u should worry about ourselves

Many believe in some thing but most know something

Isn’t that funny that we don’t know how we got here

And were going by a book written a long time ago

That is said to be a primary source but we have many copies that r different

And give a different meaning

Why is it we live in a bubble?

I’m a normal human being and I want to know why do we care and complain of little things

Like gas prices going up and things becoming more expensive

Why do we blame one person for prices instead of looking beyond the mountain?

Somewhere out there is a child in a battle field being used as a weapon?

Some where out there is a baby boy being shot accidently?

Some where out there is a war that is raising prices

Why don’t we all work together?

Why do we have to hate each other?

I know that w go based of one person

We judge everyone in a certain race by the actions of one

We look at the good instead of the bad

We pretend that no one is dying and when we remember them all we do is light up a couple of candles

Why don’t we think about it like someone is dying for your reasons?

Why don’t we think about it as a female can’t eat so that father or mother enroll to feed a families

Why don’t we think about it as when a soldier dies at war he or she left a kid parentless?

Dose anyone ever stop to think to put them self in there shoes

How would it feel to lose your mom or dad in war at a young age?

I may not know how it feel but if that would happen to me I would feel guilty because

They died to feed me and to buy me what they never had

Isn’t that what parents want for there kid

We don’t see that and when we do we just shove it all in a treasure box and forget about it

Everyone love some one and to die in war may sound heroic but to die in a way were we are fighting for people we cannot confirm its true or an idea that we think differently

We have to prove who is right

Why is it we have to wait for some one to speak up to follow their ideas?

Why can’t we all speak up for our self and see everyone view

I may be too young to understand why we do certain things

But I am not too young to see that children r being orphaned

Children are losing there part of there families

Why is there so much violence?

What happened to us?

We say we move forward but to me it looks like were going backwards

Why are we separated and segregated to live to what one tells us to

The reason we need money is because in the past someone told us to give up

If we would use that to keep us moving we would all be successful

We learned hoe to fight fights with machinery and planes

Why do people have to die?

Why do we kill each other?

We all had to come from one person

And we all have to be related due to logic

I don’t need a preacher to tell me that I was made by the first humans on earth

Logistics and common sense tells me we all are related

Why can’t we all be individuals and have to have a leader?

Why do people fight for things that can b dispute it another way

Why are we wasting time building weapons of mass destruction?

Rather than spending it on finding homes or ending starvation

Time is money as people say so why aren't we using it to work things out

We just send people in to kill each other and when hurt everyone instead

I’m not trying to say war I useless

I’m trying to say were doing it wrong

War can change why instead of violence we actually use peace

Why r we breaking families of and returning love ones in coffins

Why is it that when we hate someone we kill them?

Well I can tell this is heartfelt, cos it was long and I kind of sensed frustration. Personally as someone religious I kind of think that the "life is a living hell" is kind of an exaggeration with your soul eternally burning ... I kind of disagreed with a few parts but that's only natural. What's important to me as a reiewer and as a writer is that I can feel the emotions of the poet/writer and must I say as I read this I felt like I had got scorched by the anger of your words. xD Keep on forging words from your heart!
