Favorite Quote:
Tread softly, for you thread on my dreams.

There are no screams
Silence that suffocates
Leaves those in green
On their knees
As the deceased create graveyards
Without markers, just flesh
On the beach below
A feast has been given
To the scavengers
As the process of the clock
Reaches what is the end
There is no new beginning
Only broken cartridge
And souls
They march on
Trying to save those
Who believes the lies of pain
Would rather have death
Then false capture
I can see the blood
Behind my dreams
Of the roaring beasts
That rip the safe mentality
Of the home
They no longer have
Such desperation
I watch through the red
As they fall like wingless angels
My eyes cannot close
I am a bystander
To a tragedy caused by lies

You wouldn't have been harmed
Why did you do this?
So much carnage
So much devastation
There is no victory here
Only guilt and cries
Child lies still in purgatory
Hand clasped around the one
Who brought this demise
My heart screams
As the graveyard grows
And their eyes say
We are saved

It hurts to much
To look into their vacant eyes

The author's comments:
This from a soldier's point of a view during a horrible event that happened in WWII when several hundred Japanese people took their own lives after their town was captured by the US. They believed that they would suffer horrible treatment from the US army so they killed themselves.
