Poetry Say Something

War and Daily Life

I wanna run away from

The thought that people are

Dying so that I can be

A free American 


I watched ken burns’ the war

And I got goose bumps and

For moments I really believed

But believed in what          


That bullets and bombs and

Mortars and tanks and

Blood and guts spilled

In the name of freedom

Will result in peace


Peace will not exist as

Long as humans seek

Greed and power and wealth          


That’s how it is, unfortunately

And so I take solace in the

Bending tree at dusk just

Before the final light fades
