Over and Out

Will the stars of night be seen,
From where I stand and fight?
Would the moon pass my code,
Along with its tender light?

When the war-cry be heard,
Over wind blown down the hill,
When foes come upfront,
Can you stand trusting my will?

When I see men like us,
Fighting from end of otherside,
Will you pray for both our lives,
And to forget the whole divide?

When all my weapons misfire,
And detest to take their life,
Can you weigh my mind of guilt,
Take back my military knife?

When I'm hit with multiple rounds,
As I may fall defending our land,
Will you close my lifeless eyes,
And take gun away from my hand?

    Forget the whole divide! Hope humanity will reach that stage and peace will prevail. Beautiful poem delivering your thoughts. Thank you.

    I am sorry that I read this poem a few days late. Peace is craved for ever though the mandatory fights have to be fought to retain our rights over our lands.
    The tale of India`s freedom struggle stands tall and high before that of the Kurukhetra battle glorifying bloodshed between the cousins and that of the Mother of all Battles fought by the Americancs speaking of violence for truiumph.
    Though the times have changed and let us hope the belligerents will one day come to living for each other.

    Good write my friend..As it is said, war begins in the minds of men, your poem is a good attempt for those minds to indulge in introspection and then retrospect their err...No peace can ever be won through war....

    Stars do not shine on war at night
    They cannot shine past the flashing death of light
    There are no rivers, trees or hill
    only the grim determination of one's fearing will

  • Patricia Grantham (8/14/2013 7:38:00 AM)

    A mind blowing write about guns and war. Unfortunately to make peace
    there must be war. Lives are lost and families are destroyed. Peace will
    come when love reigns within the hearts of every man, woman and child.
    Keep writing and never give up! .
