A short poem: Words for War

photo 4-5

It’s all the same; we’re all the same
The struggles of one; the hardships of many
They’re all wrong; we’re all right
My pain is far worse than yours
Your fight is not worth the gain
We feel, we love, we win, you lose
The shifting skies change the tides
Our minds latch on to one thing only
What’s yours needs to be mine
Except for your pain
