Such A Waste

Such A Waste

Such a waste

                A fortune on misery

                                Destruction unimaginable

                                                Sophisticated weaponry

                                                                Wasted resources

Such a waste

                Broken families

                                Ruined lives

                                                Mutilated bodies

                                                                Wasted people

Such a waste

                Instead of building

                                Instead of laughter

                                                Instead of improvement

                                                                Wasted hopes

All such a terrible waste.

Of mutilated bodies. Of revenge and hate.

I imagine the world as if could be if all the money spent on war was spent on peace. The end of poverty, the end of destruction. A bright happy world. We are driven
