The Cry Of War

February 14, 2011
"Some day the war will end, but oh, I knew,”
that it would last this long.
I spend my nights,
That someday he will return.
But no,
He won’t, will he?
Doubt swarms my mind.
“Oh mother, mother, where is happiness?”
I know it isn’t in war!
I shouldn’t have let him go,
My love being too strong.
Never let him go,
Why’d I let him go?

Inspired by the poem,
“The Sonnet-Ballad”
By Gwendolyn Brooks
