    Many are the times we contemplate our lives
    the meaning of it all, should we ever fall
     Children and their cries of their war straught lives
    echo of the bombs and buildings when they fall
     Damage that is wrought for freedom that is sought
    tho the price is high, the freedom finally bought
     The dead and the dying all for freedom trying
    just to strive to live, out their lives that god did give
     Who is wrong and who is right, gets all lost within the fight
    the meaning of it all, forgotten in the battle call
     The machine gun screams hollow, bringing death, cries of sorrow
    then the planes fly by raining death down from the sky
     All will try to run, tho soldiers some are none
    looking for some place to hide, seeking shelter as they die
     The bombs and bullets fly, promises of death
    thee words are never lies
     As thebattle rages, lives are not forsaken
    each in their turn, feeling bullets as they burn
    through the heart and soul, tho some do not bleed
    they all take their toll
     So when this war is over, all the soldiers gone
    those who're left behind struggle to carryon
     Just to strive, to live
    out their lives that God did give

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
