Blood Red

hatred burns within us all
some will rise to answer it’s call

we fight for a useless cause
even against physics’ laws 

we hate one another
some even our own brother

in a country that’s at war 
point by point we tally the score

but if both sides lose men
are we really better than them?

streets run red with blood
almost drowned by the flood

we can stop the madness
no more sadness

love each other
sister, brother

come together
stay forever

    Got home from school after listening to my 6th grade teacher talk about World War II, wrote this.
