War is such an ugly place

So full of fear. So full of hate.


Makes no difference who’s right or wrong,

When both sides believe their

Rallying cry is the righteous one.

War makes minds of reason lose control

And killing and killing is the only goal.


And when it’s all over, and the dead are

Put to rest, may all the remaining living

Reflect in sorrow and wonder and pray to God

that He may grant that mankind may never again

forget how war is such an ugly place.
