WAR'S TRAGEDY

IWVPA Double Tap Award for War Poetry: September 28, 2007

I'm sad today
I don't want to go on
My past has caught up with me

The tears keep welling
For deeds long ago
I'll hide so no one can see

I'll hold on for today
Tomorrow it may be gone
Something may set me free

Family and friends
Can't help me now
It's gone too far I see

I'll pull it together
One more time
And chase the demons from me
