Googling Me and Discovervies – War: Why The Destruction

I was bored and just flicking through internet today while waiting for supper to be done and I decided to google my name (you know we have all done it, lol)..

I came across a poem on a site I wrote before I was even married – wow..

I though I would share it with all my followers:

War: Why the Destruction

War: Why the Destruction

Who’s battle are we fighting in vain?

All of this power and resources used to cause such pain

Do we really know what the troops are fighting for?

Or is there something we have not been told – something more?

So many innocent lives lost to this war!

Sent to fight a battle without being told the true reasons

Why is not wanting to go into this blindly treason?

Families are torn apart

Not knowing what is happening being kept in the dark

Wanting to know where their loved ones are – fearing that fateful call!

Young people killed or taken hostage by the enemy

Many forgotten – assumed dead – how can this be?

Civilians killed by American hands

Others forced to leave their homes and lose their land!

What will this all accomplish? – it has to be asked!

The impact and devastation of this war are sure to last

Lives will never be the same when this is done

Hatred and anguish will still be present when the troops are gone!

Fighting violence and hate with the same is just insane

Truly it is not the way to end this deadly game

What is it that they want to leave behind?

For the message will be etched in history for all time!!

War Torn Lives

Raptured by war
Rebels overtook
Clawed and torn apart
Death a familiar foe
Ashes instead of homes
Stranded – some escape
Not all make it alive
Woman and children
Captured for slavery
Obey or die!
Tortured and raped
Half Beaten to Death!
Silence or Consequence
Cries and screams
No one hears their silent pleas!
Unknown faces no one sees
Stories untold and forgotten
Precious and troubled souls
Endangered by our ignorance
