Futility of War

F or each life lost a mother grieves U ntil the last shot is fired she will never sleep. T ears will fall as we count the cost. I ll winds blow as the war goes on. L ove must prevail for peace to win I t must stay strong to make evil give in. T ime ticks by with each life snuffed out. Y et no lessons are learned as the enemies shout O f rights and power, F orce and might, W illing the other to acknowledge they are right. A lways remember that for each life lost R emains a nation counting the cost.
