WAR

April 16, 2008
By Saige Davis, GREENVILLE, SC

WAR,
A SIMPLE WORD
FOR A COMPLICATED AFFAIR
SOMETIMES THEY SAY IT’S FOR THE PEOPLE
WE KNOW THE REAL REASON

WAR,
IT’S ABOUT POWER, DIGNITY,
THE DESIRE TO PROVE ONES-SELF
IT’S MORE HURTFUL

WAR,
BODIES, BLOOD, BOMBS
WIDOWS, ORPHANS, BEGGERS
SORROW, SUFFERING, PAIN. . .
BUT THERE IS SOME GOOD

WAR,
A NEW HOPE, A NEW LIFE,
A NEW BEGINNING
ANOTHER CHANCE
PEACE! ONCE AGAIN

WAR
IT’S OVER. . .
FOR NOW
