Futility of war

Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.

-John F KennedyDSC03122Wits scattered

Mind in commotion

Dreams shattered

In tumultuous emotion

Holding on hard

To everything known

Piercing shards

In all corners blown..

The universe oozing

Hot lava of cruelty

Slipping, losing

All grip on reality..

Senseless bloodshed

For reasons unclear

Destruction widespread

In a climate of fear..

How tragic is war

Feeding on plight

Who is it for?

No victor in sight…

The world is just one

In war there’s no gain

Wars may be lost, or won

Victor and victim both suffer the pain.
