WHILE OUR SOLDIERS ARE DYING

How do we enjoy life while our soldiers are dying?
How can we be happy while sons and daughters are killed?
We keep asking and asking with no one replying,
While some political manoeuvre is being fulfilled.
More soldiers; more soldiers; we must send more soldiers,
Meaning more soldiers and civilians will certainly die,
They are labelled the saviours the active resolvers,
But no one is replying as we ask ourselves why.
You only live once your life is so precious,
It is not worth your losing your life for a lie,
Our sons and our daughters, our loved ones our kin
Are dying in battle and passing life by.
And what was the point sacrificing any of them?
For reasons it seems we all want to deny.
