So much for glory, so much for freedom

The soldiers lie weary and tired

Walk between bodies

As people sitting far away

First, glorified and admired

Then opponents attacked, bombs were dropped

Hospitals, schools became a pile of rumble

Trees fell down, wires were chopped

The sound of sirens ring in their ears

The deafening silence surrounds

The flying jets roar in the sky

As hearts are poked with spears

Innocent civillians suffer

But what good came of it?

Only leaders are praised, as earth gets damaged

And livelihoods become rougher

Time passes, horrific memories remain

At night they return, meddle with dreams

The war ends, the damge remains

So much for glory, so much for freedom

      1. Sorry, hadn’t seen the comment before.πŸ˜…
        In your articles, you state really good points so why not elaborate on them a bit. Like give your personal explanation on it and why you think thatbis how it should be. Like convince the reader.
        I am no expert…just felt this while reading
        Also, how’s life?

  2. Great poem and great truth. It is easy to forget about war taking place far away if you don’t think about it or see the damage done. I have met lots of veterans missing multiple limbs, and I have cared for the wounded in hospital beds. War did tremendous damage to my own father. Thank you for this great piece on war. Well done. Love to you and all your loved ones. β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ€—Joni
