Soft cries, newborn plight
Held in arms, loves tender delight
Seeking comfort from breast of love
New life held in arms, a warm cove


Gunshots peal against ink black sky
Wounded dying wait and cry
Odour of death permeates smoke dank air
Bodies lay in grotesque flair

Sad, but somewhat uplifting.  The idea of a peaceful loving start compaired to a violent ugly death is powerful, nice topic.  Great write.


Love, Rin

What a stark contrast, Joe..Nicely penned.. Someday, we may evolve to the point where children are not born to grow up and die in wars..I'm having a little faith in a Star Trek future for our race. After all, we haven't been out of the tree tops that long...len

This poem will have gripped many hearts, The image of the poem was so clear, the babies crying.

Horible world, which will never be rested, sadly.

 A poem that exist  and breaths in the sounds  of your native world... A sad poem but you see hear and read every day.. I'm sorry for your losses in your country...
A constant battle that no one wins....Hugs ~ Scarlett

Dear Joe-
Two simple yet complex words-
The only reality of this existence that is a fact is
life begets death-
A excellent and decisive description in a
short yet in depth piece of writing-
Best Wishes~

What a chillingly poignant contrast you present us here, Joe...

I could hear the babies cry and smell the guns bitter...smell...what's that called?

This really plays tug~of~war with both heart and mind.

Excellent penning of a poignant experience~
