There is barely anything to eat but there is a war,
war once more,
and there is no time to die peacefully and death it comes so easily,
and life,
people fight hard to keep it but often keeping life is impossible,
and there is little chance of holding onto life at all,
for in the struggle what priorities are given to ways to save life,
not much at all,
and in this fight and in this struggle amidst the bullets the bombs and the explosions if you do not
kill you will be killed,
and if you lose you will die on a foreign field,
and not see your family ever again,
because in the inhumanity of humanity,
there is such brutal depravity and then you will lay in your grave forevermore,
because war is hell,
war is hell,
a hell that throughout the history of humanity never seems to end,
and death,
death it takes a lot to comprehend because it does not care how it takes you away,
or how it shuffles you off this mortal coil,
but it will happily shuffle people off until the heavens fall into the bloodied soil,
and in the evil of men there is a loss of control,
and a lack of common sense and humanity repeats itself again and again,
and because of the lack of common sense and control there is a massive loss of life,
and humanity never seems to learn no matter how much people pray because,
because bad decisions are continually made each day,
and in the evil of men, in the evil of men how weak are they.
