On This Memorial Day Weekend — The Picture Of War   4 comments

“The Picture of War” — Image by kenne

see this picture

the picture of war

not really

it’s not clear

so little information

not able to reason

observation void

or is it

some will reason

based on blind faith

indifferent to the truth

yet people believe

it is the truth

rather than asking

is it the truth

wars exist

fed on

indifference to the truth

prompt with careless moods

minus the circumstances

left to question

only at death

a glorious war

where men stood

and truth died

still, tomorrow comes

she can feel beside

a picture changing

no longer accepting

only asking

is it the truth

  1. Truth is always lost in the fog of war. Is that why we end up in so many wars both within our lives and in the words and actions of politicians? Are we really about the glory of fog making truth indistinct?

  2. Reblogged this on Becoming is Superior to Being and commented:
