Veterans Day: A short poem for a great group


This is a great perspective and tribute to our veterans on their day. Enjoy! 🙂

Sometimes the dead and gone speak volumes to the living through the days that we honor the dead.

The wars they went through and the horrors they saw cause a muteness as if the stillness conveys what could be said.

It does not matter what war is the cause of the demise,

The root of war is complex and the results are what we despise.

Even today as civilized as we believe we are, the death from wars goes on,

The deaths are not glorified, they are the horrors of man on steroids, weapons by the ton.

We have increased our technology to kill not one or two at a time, but multitudes of hundreds,

Cities bombed and burned to the ground, from bombs that plundered and thundered.

If only peace could reign, that is what the world silently screams,

But alas, it is not to be, to many thoughts…
