War Never Changes

Through the history of the world,
Swords struck shields and spears were hurled,
Many have fought and many have died,
Among the horrible, bloody tide.

And before the time of spears and shields,
Before the rows of bloody fields,
Were sharpened sticks and a jagged rock,
Ever since we have learned to walk

War was the same, no matter when,
It happens now and it will again,
It happens to us, it will for our kin,
War claims life with an evil grin.

We try to stop it with all our might,
But no one can ever stop the fight,
The time between, it always ranges,
But War…

War never changes.

even if it wasnt a mistake, no harm done. I enjoy being critiqued about my work both positively and negatively. Also if you liked my poem, feel free to pass the link around
