War Why War
War why war that is the question I ask you,
glancing from a distance seeing guns and bombs pass through.
I could be in this war but the chance I didn't take it,
because in my mind I had thoughts that I wouldn't even make it.
Thinking of my family, and my beloved girlfriend,
could this be the final war of all Wars? Does the world end?
I'm so deep in this bible and come to find out it's all wrong,
only 1 week has passed so far, but it seems just so long.
War Why War that is the question I ask men,
I just wanted an education, but killing to me is not a passion.
