Think

Armies fighting,

People alike,

Stop for a moment and think;

Why?

Safe

Do you feel safe?

The bombs are powerful.

The guns are loaded.

People race,

The bridges are high.

I'll ask you again,

Do you feel safe?

Cost

Wars are won,

Battles are lost,

Peace restored?

But at what cost?

War

Wars mean to make things better,

Wars mean to restore peace.

Amid the bloodshed the cause is lost to grievance.

Cycles

Peace to ownership,

Ownership to arguments,

Arguments to war,

War to death,

Death to sadness,

Sadness to peace.
