The rights of non-warriors

Updated on November 24, 2011


When I think of war

I think of death

When I think of death

I think of war

Either on the homeland

or the dark rocky mountains

somewhere around the world

what are we fighting for?

Power to be in control

Nothing gain from past wars

Only blood sheds on the battlefields

where many cities are destroy

because of man greed

To gain the world

then lose your soul

Wisdom is better than any

Silver, oil or Gold

The stench of death devourer the air

Death is alway violent

from the slaughter houses

to the battlefields

Does anybody really cares?

Mothers aching hearts

for their only sons

Fathers activates hatred toward their countrymen

Young soldiers marching off to war

only to be gunned down

before the break of dawn

It's a war of hate

How much more can we take?

knowing the true facts about the war in Afghanistan

We the people have to take a stand

and announce to the man in charge

No more war, laid down your weapons!

Let have peace in the Middle East


A state of usually open and declared armed

Conflict between states and nation

Where is the love and harmony

instead of building a nation of enemies

where is the rights of non-warriors

Why do we have to be subject

to the stupidity of war.

Take a stand for the human rights.

War! defused it

      Untrue, Humanity wins in some cases. Hitler and his ilk needed to be eradicated off the planet. And they were. I am happy we're not forced to speak German. I think the Jewish People are too.

      Nobody wins, I wrote in my poem (The futility of war). You have gone much deeper and written more than I did , but it seems we are on the same wavelength.

      Thank you.

      Exlelent write Darknlovely, you'r a real poet at heart, The arms industry is such a big business and as long as someone is fighting somewhere then it make a lot of profit from blood.

      War is Hell and you cannot refine it. It is good war is so terrible, lest we grow too fond of it.~Sherman and Lee.Your poem is good and more than just appreciated Darknlovely.

      Seeker and poetvix thank you both for stopping by,

      however, if history is correct nothing good came out of war, only lifes lost, veterans ignored and the list goes on....difused war!

      I found this to be a really good, socially relevant piece. I agree with Seeker7 that some wars did have to be fought, but what the heck are we fighting these for?

      Hi, wonderful poem! On the whole I do agree with your sentiments about some wars. But when we look at history, I feel some wars had to be fought. During World War II, should we have all sat back and just waited for Hitler to anihilate whole cultures and peoples? Sometimes we cannot, as decent human beings, turn our backs on other humans simply because war is horrific. To use mediation would be preferable, but in real life it normally doesn't work. But I loved your poem and you have captured the heartbreaking picture of war wonderfully.

      Thank you for commenting thejeffriestube Poetry has always been something you see, feel and hear , not just something you read as a written thing, so i decided to write a little something about war, and if i could get one person attention, then i feel like i contributed(my two cent)

      once again thank you for reading

      peace within

      Great hub, I absolutely love your poetry. Two thumbs up!

      That said, if you're going to write a poem about the horrors of war and accuse all wars of being fought for greed, maybe you should look at World War II, the American Revolution, and the better parts of Afghanistan where service members walk patrol at night, and build schools during the day. The media is designed to keep you watching. Even if that content is always doom and gloom. War surely is hell, and avoiding it is best, but sometimes it is neccesary. Personally, I would have made too fat a Nazi.
