This war is not for us

Hi! My hubby where are you?
I endure labor pain,
To bring your child in this world;
You are needed here to solace,
Embrace to courage,
To withstand the pain of disquietude; 
But thou in war zone,
Holding gun to kill others;
War is game of greedy reigns,
Use own people as sheeps,
Sacrifice to commemorate,
The festive 'weapon sale';
Seek vote from us with slogans,
'Food and home for all';
But in ground reality,
More than half of world
Still lack food to quench hunger;
War on hunger, homelessness,
They still lack the will; 
This war is not for us, 
We live for kids, live fir each other;
Come my hubby come,
Have a glimpse of new born;
This chance is once,
In your whole life;
