What War is All About

I'd like to share with you a poem from Thea. She was a child who lived part of her young life in a japanese concentration camp with her mother during WWII. Her father was taken away to work on the railroad, she never saw him again, he died of starvation. 
If you would like to read more of her story see her blog Coconut Connections

What war is all about. 

War is evil 
War is the devil 
War is between politicians 
War is about religions 
War is destruction 
War is not construction 
War is depression 
War is an obsession 
War is fighting 
War is killing 
War is sorrow 
War is no tomorrow 
War is explosions 
War is confusions 
War is blood 
War brings tears like a flood 
War makes you cry 
War makes you die 
War is death all around 
War makes you die on foreign ground 
War is fire 
War is not to admire! 
War is creed 
War is between different breed 
War is cruel 
War cost a lot of fuel 
War is amputations 
War is mutilations 
War last forever 
I wonder if it ends in Heaven 
War is only release 
For those who are killed 
It means 'PEACE' 

Tetske van der Wal
