Silent Night

Written by: sam jennings

Light goes out,
door closes,
the thick silence all that fills the void.
Thoughts besiege me now.
I look to the cot for escape.
But alas, I am betrayed.

War begins,
world burns,
each soldier brought down before they're time.
It proves not who's right.
The slaughter only proves who is left.
The one winner, turmoil.
