Nothing was ever right, 
Yet it seemed it was.
Families fell apart,
and homeless grew together.
Mothers lost their Sons,
Fathers lost their Daughters.
The government tried to hide the truth,
But the truth came out.
Now people will suffer
from loss of loved one.
Loved one loosing their families.
Think of the people that will lose everything they've got,
before you blow them to pieces.
Think of the kids who will loose their home,
when you blow up a house.
Think of how you would feel if you were the one 
on the other side of the bazooka.
How would you feel,
As someone murders the life you had,
and all the memories it went with it.
Because that's what you are making them see.

    this is a very good poem and it is sad that we live in a time when there is so much war going on and for what reason? this was a good and very well written piece. Jo

    Excellent commentary on the tragedies of war, Johneta. The losses become quite personal to those whose loved ones die, but only the government can put an end to war. Unfortunately, we do not seem to be headed for peace in the Mideast. Blessings and Christmas joy, Carolyn

    Very nice, taking on the perspective of the victim and elaborating, just brilliant!
