A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
Charles Darwin

Would you cry?
Would you feel sorrow?
For the men who ran out onto the battlefield to die
For families bombed by unconscious enemies
Would you hurt inside?

Would you hate?
Would you feel anger?
For those blown to pieces by the so-called faithful
For those murdered without a single thought
Would you burn inside?

No, you wouldn't
So now I say
Those who feel no sorrow
Have no appreciation
For moments where there’s none

So come with me
And cry
Hold my hand
Feel sorrow
For the men who ran out onto the battlefield to die

I was inspired to write this piece when I heard someone talking about not feeling upset towards the fact that many soldiers have died at war and many of the for no reason. Please write comments! I want to know what I can do to make it better!
