Subject: Acts Of War
Children taken from their homes
Promised honor and respect galore
Not comprehending this terrible fact:
These are the acts of war

Life’s blood spills onto the ground
Innocents? There are no more!
Only sheer fights for survival
These are the acts of war

You cannot train a man to kill
He, himself, must learn to gore
To take lives, good or bad
These are the acts of war

A man’s name becomes a number
A thousand down? Two? Three? Four?
Buried unmarked or left to rot
These are the acts of war
________________________________________

Towers fall and smoke bursts forth
A nation cries from shore to shore
With so much lost and so many gone
Is this worth more acts of war?

I wrote finished this last October, but I began it shortly before September 11 of 2010. The last stanza is what took me a month to finish it. I couldn't find a way to word what I wanted to say in rhyme. This was my best effort after several.
