Poem: The Truth Behind War

Updated on December 19, 2016

Wasting All Races

Warfare Allow Real lost

Wicked Arrogant Reason

Witness Agony and Remorse

Welcome Absolute Rupture

Whole Absent of Religion

War Avoids Real joy

War Affect us in Reality….

Once a beautiful place,

wonderful things around,

Nonstop people continuously working-

moving place to place.

Smiling and talking to different folks-

whom they know;

whom they know nothing about.

Seems there’s no spot for silence

even at night.

There’s noise around

coming from every direction.


a terrible explosion crashed the ground!

the noise becomes source of terror,

everyone’s heart-

beats annoyingly.

Anyone can heard it from within.

It seeks protection-

from screams,

from frightened heart,

from terrible sound of explosives falling,

from great destruction it would cause,

and from the tragic end it may bring to its life…


Look at it now!

What a mess!

What a disaster!

Debris is everywhere.

Once a busy town, now it stops working

…it stops moving.

Noise is still there

..but coming from the ghosts

of those who still seek help, justice and


from the memories repeatedly reminding its past.

Look at it now!

a strange place, you’ll never want to be in;

a hell you want to escape;

a nightmare you keep avoiding but still haunting you.

Look at it now!

It becomes a ghost town,

it becomes poor.

it becomes dead!

Look at it now!

Happiness turns to sadness,

Smiles turn to painful cries,

Sweet greetings turn to bitter expression,

Success turns to failure, despair and suffering…

Look at it now!

Those who are in power,

Look at it using your heart and soul

Is this really what you want?

to ruin everything?

to destroy life?

be the source of hatred?

Don’t think- ACT NOW!

Stop the war!

Stop it…stop it!

'Coz one thing is for sure...

God will not just sit and watch there!


tragic end....death!
tragic end....death!

War is not the solution and it will never be!...we're just putting ourselves in great danger, untimely death, ultimate destruction and great pain to the world.

Anything in mind?!!!!

What is your opinion about war?

      Gosh, this is one of the best poems I have read in ages! Well written! It captures the essence of futility in war. There are no real winners in a war, anyway. Bravo!
