Built up frustration
Sent to war to fight a petty fight
Fearing death
The thought you might not make it through the night.

"Fire" yelled
You have no voice
Sent to war but not by choice
Families and friends gather again.

Placing flowers on a grave
Another life we COULD HAVE SAVED
But across seas they dont consider it such
Killing each other doesn't mean as much.

Black on white crime
Men against women
Violence is violence
There are no limits.

Tears shed
People dead
Things could've been different
If these words were said.

Coming back home
Only to relive it every night
Waking up screaming out of pure fright
Whether you shot them up close
Or killed them from afar.

You still have your life
His loved ones just a scar
Stars in the sky
With the planes you fly.

Just think how your family woud feel
If you were the next person to die!!!!
