A loss to win

Warriors of my motherland
I can see you are well armed
In weapons and in courage
To fight for a dream of age
That will liberate all of us
But what if the dream is false?

What if we were never meant
To go out, head on and fight
But let the bitterness of life
Tear us apart with its knives
Like the farmers do to grass
And the fire burns it to ash

What if the best way forward
Is not bravery but as cowards
For tomorrow to be made better
By the shoot that shall sprout later
From bones and rotten corpses
Liberating all of us.

  2. Brother the way to win the world is through winning the hearts… war and strife can lead us no where, that is what the human history is showing us… hope humanity realises this atleast after reading your poem…
    Beautifully expressed… just loved the way you wrote it…

  3. πŸ‘ŒThis is worth pondering on? What if we are fighting the right battle with the wrong weapons and vice versa?
