COST OF WAR

IWVPA Double Tap Award for War Poetry: January 27, 2009
Awarded: January 27, 2009
Tracks through time
Jungles and sand
Young and old
The meek and the bold

The guilty and the innocents
All left their footprints
War has always raged
Upon almost every history page

In the minds of those who fought
There is still peace sought
So elusive still years on
After the battles have come and gone

It is peace they strive for
But find that the cost of war
Is its solders unrest…
Seemingly… Forevermore
