The Crimson Sands Of War



With her arms torn off, guts spilling out
She can only cry when she wants to shout
Then the blood colors the sand on which she falls

She cries."Father this is a dirty war
"I've had enough can't take no more.
Please take me home,just take me home to you"

Her voice is soft but soon turns shrill
It's a thing that happens against your will
And the blood flows from her veins like the river Jordan

He answers and says he won't let her go
Til all mankind learns what he knows.
"I'M SPARING YOUR LIFE SO THEY'LL LEARN WHAT BULLETS DO."

The medics come and shake their heads
Numbed by the pain of gathering dead,
Silently lifting her body from blood soaked sands.

There is no win in victory
She has served her country to keep us free
And the blowing winds clear sands of their crimson glories.

Ah, the tears literally dripped down as I read this poem over and over. And, definitely, it made me resolve to continue my quest for wars to end and peace on earth to reign again. I encounter many good people questioning my quest but your poem definitely explains why I am relentless about lifting my quest up to the Lord........I also know he cries too when he sees what mankind is doing in the name of winning a victory. Thank you mamasan

Have you heard of soldiers Angels, we serve our soldiers by writing letters cards and giving them encouragement as they are caught in the midst of this terrible war.

Sad and all to real of a poem. Very well written and a I feel that poems such as these need to be written for those who have never seen combat.

You have seen what I can imagine and a lot more. The men and ladies in the military are my true heroes. I'm a soldiers angel writing the wounded and very very ill in military hospitals. Thank God you came back to us.
