Crave!

How often we crave to go back in time

to change the mistakes we made

though the past is a distant mime

events that have long been played

easy to think of reshaping our blunders

that often tug at our stressful minds

forgetting those few moments of wonders

bad memories linger good hidden by blinds!

 

Yet I feel life is planned often causing pain

win or fail is this preordained to be

many aspects to learn reaching a higher plain

no possibility for us to go back and see

with such a turbulent and horrendous history

to survive reasonably unscathed a victory

trying to change what has gone a cosmic crime

mysteries must stay lost in the veil’s of time!

 

Life for us is short ticktock for nobody will it stop!

Watching!

On the dusty tank the soldiers stared intently

watching the shells strike

detonating onto the occupied enemy lines

as rockets and shell fire

was quickly returned in a never ending battle

creating vibration and rattle!

 

Each were distant from the carnage and anguish

young conscripts not hardened

warriors of  too many campaigns of aggression

again forced to protect their land

believing their cause was just without hesitation

the civilians filled with trepidation!

 

But as with all brutal conflicts it breeds more hate

resentment creating much bigger foe

a cycle of revenge and bloody savage retaliation

as the very young bitterly grow up

the horrors absorbed into impressionable minds

peace hopes fading behind closing blinds!

 

The ever mounting strife going back to long ago

hard to break historical differences

each have grievances and suspicions to tell

that seem impossible to resolve

the deaths and injuries continue to increase

can a way ever be found for peace?

 

My wishes always for a planet without wars!
