~ God and War ~

Instruments of peace are fashioned in war
The scalpel was once a knight’s sword
Often good things from the destruction we saw
Resulted in lasting reward.
Tis awful that lives are wasted and shattered;
That people in millions die.
But it seems in our history that every war mattered
Though we fail to understand why.
Tis never so good for those who may suffer
But suffering is the will to survive.
For what is our God if there isn’t a devil?
For what reason would we be alive?
We’re born and we die to keep it all level
But none of us ever survive.
