War Poem: Cold Stony Sand

Cold Stony Sand

I stand here in a foreign land
Beneath my boots, cold stony sand.

A dessert country rough as stones,
with frosty nights that chill my bones,

And scorching days that blind my sight,
A burning hell until the night.

I came to keep the peace, I hear,
But all I do is live in fear.

Unseen eyes, they stare at me
Please send me home, please set me free.

Poem by Pya Parekh

Hearts winding up to the stars
just as tree branches reaching for the moon
the starvation for hope lies even within the mist of nature

River by Pya Parekh

River

young fresh life is born and grows
as a river flowing down in each bend
rushing in search, in search for the essence life
on his path the beauty of the world reflects on surface
pure and young the river touches every corner of the world
creating life in his path
finally reaching the ocean the soul rises to nirvana
new rain falls again learning and creating ever more beauty on its path
the river as gracious as our children
and the ocean as wise as our elders
water is the essence life

Three Haiku Poems by Christine Bruness

twilight on the beach~
the roaring sound of laughter
with no one in sight.

on the cusp of spring
mounds of snow still conceal our
tulip flowerbed.

Sweet Gardinia
permeating the bedroom
...rapture of spring

I Thought I was Winning

I thought I was winning
I thought I could wait -
Holding the doors
Of the rickety gate,

While the enemy thundered
And heaved at the stakes
I always just wondered
How long it would take.

And you said you would come
Just as soon as you could,
That the moment should be
When the moment was good.

Well the moment has passed
And its passing today,
I'm not gonna last.
Not another two days.

So this is my ending
It hurts me to say.
I'm tired of pretending
That I'll be okay.

I'd rather start over.
I'd rather start clean
Far from the droves of
Unending machines.

How can I live
If I stay or I go.
What I would give,
For a life I could hold.

Five years of torture,
The more good I do.
This isn't living.
This shouldn't be true.

No more "tomorrow."
No more "two days."
Damn it I'm dying here.
All I can say.

Free War Poem: Mercy Please

Free War Poem

Mercy Please

Mercy please,
I lost the fight.

Mercy please,
I'm down with fright,

Mercy please,
I wished no harm.

Mercy please,
War lost its charm.

Mercy please,
I want to live!

Mercy please,
what life can give.

Mercy please,
I want no fear.

Just want to live
another year.

Free War Poem

I Cry in Fear

I cry in fear,
I scream with hate.
What gave us all
This ugly fate?

To meet upon
The battle field,
Where all must fight,
And none can yield.

I do not want
To do whats right.
I want to kill.
I want to fight.

My brother died.
I loved him dear.
You took from me
Those who were near.

I cannot end
Or stop this war.
I need to fight;
Settle the score.

Free War Poem

I Do Not Hate My Enemy

I do not hate my enemy.
He fights for all his children free.

'Tis why we choose to go to war
My child is what I'm fighting for.

We both fight for our liberty
To see our children strong and free.

'Tis really a strange twist of fate
that sees our love turned into hate.

It is lessen I must give,
I want my child, my child to live.

For now I fight, I fight my fiend
Another life, you'd be my friend.

Machines of War

Machines of war.
The cogs of fate.
They're made to kill
And teach of hate

I worship death,
Your enemy.
I track you down,
Don't let you flee.

So run as can.
You run so well
You're in my sight
But you can't tell.

This is the game.
Its you or me.
Its rather grim
The choices be.

These are the thoughts
That I do figure.
With my finger
On the trigger.

Goodbye for now,
You lucky clover.
You rest in peace.
For you its over.

Free War Poem: Songs of War

Free War Poem

Songs of War

Songs of war rang through the land.
Come lend us all a fighting hand

Seek enemy, and show no fear.
He does not know his end is near.

Through force, we take the land we found.
We drive him of his holy ground,

And route him with the point of spear.
And take from him all he held dear.

With victory for all to see,
We cheer to see our victoms flee.

Such is the way of stronger man.
we take from him, because we can.

Yet, here I stand, with mirthless grin.
I shot that fiend, I killed his kin.

For this, I have a medal here.
T'was traded for my soul, I fear.
