In War

download

Do you know how it feels?
when humanity falls apart
and guns aim at your feet
when there’s long way ahead
but you’re deserted in friendless vast land
When air is fumed with smoking fires
And screams engross your family ranks
when you only wish you could help your mate
but you know there is enemy at the gates

Do you know how it hurts?
When bloodthirsty animals devour at your meat
tears and cries is all you can read
when night has fallen and day never seem to arrive
and you seek your mother’s caress
but all you feel are piercing knives
when world is counting your deaths
but does less than it requires
Alas, when even wars are commercialized

Do you know how to survive?
when hidden behind the mounting tanks
you find monsters attacking from evil lands
A child whispers to another
With a gust of such fear
that his little heart sink to his pants
Approached by a fiery gang
With a hollow chest of a beastly vamp
starring them with empty eyes
when a child stands up before his friends
and bravely shouts, take me!
unlike you, i give my life like a revered man

    Oh dear! This surely brings a feeling of being in war zone. People shouting of war should read it once to know what all submerges around the war. Hope, all is well at your place.
