War – A Collab Poem
(Originally from July 2007)
Death & War
Through the echoes of history
what is it they were thinking of?
“It wasn’t personal”, they say
as millions of skulls are watching from above
the lines written in pain
the many words that have been said
Paragraphs written in blood
All fade, as ashes, from our hands
lessons never learned
with hindsight eyes, you’re still reluctant to see
Mankind still follows the path of destruction
While we stand looking at nothing but misery.
The lines were contributed by: Cheryl, journey2heaven, alba bama, Charles, Vicki Wagner, saint/jesus, DayLove, and Chi Shanay.
My second collab poem. Yay!
