My passion, is the main heartbreaking tragedy of this world.
War I hate war,
Soldiers from all countries lose their lives for what,
what insane reason can allow so many people to die.
The babies shot to pieces but still alive, to live,
what life can these poor children live,
what other horrors await them, just to survive.
The soldiers, horribly wounded returning home,
to a family that might not be able to cope, who turn away.
What happens to that man or woman.
Who will be their cane in their hour of need.
The countries themselves, reduced to rubble, history destroyed in minutes,
the animals, wiped out in an instant, never to regain its numbers.
The birds, who no longer sing. Shock affects nature as well as people.
Who cares, I do, I care.
