Stop All Wars

Why do we have to have war?
What exactly is it good for?
It just splits the world apart
and causes much pain in my heart.
Peace is what we need.
There is homeless to feed.
If peace is what we had,
nobody would be sad.
Why can't we all just be left be?
What war is doing to us isn't hard to see.
Quit looking for reasons to fight and attack.
Just look for a way to get our soldiers out of Iraq.

The author's comments:
I wrote this about five years ago. That's when I first started realizing that the war was the problem. It's been seven years of war and were not getting any better. Maybe this poem will help everyone realize how much of a problem it is.
