Brothers( its about wars)

Post by Lioness » Tue Nov 05, 2002 1:15 pm

I stand at the battles front marching for what seems hours. People are falling on both sides, all to fight a cause. Crys are ringing out, they are sobs of injured men crying for familys that will never be seen again. The war is over and my side has won, I sit upon a rock to rest. As i look upon the carnage of battle i see a man dying, I walk over to him and soon relize he is the enemy, so i drop on my knees in pity relizing how young this boy realy is. The boy talks to me in a foriegn toung and hands me a picture of his family, I know not of what he is saying but I listen anyway. I hold this boys hand for all hope for him is gone. He crys as I try to comfort him, I relize that he is crying for life. He has stoped crying i think he is dead. I tried to revive him but to no avail. I think to my self why do we have to fight such bloody wars? I relize this day that even my enemies are people with lives, hopes, dreams, even families...just like me....they are not monsters. My world has been forever changed as i weep for the dead. I went on though like any other soldier would, my hands.. they were soaked in blood in my attemps to help others. I relize a great many lives were taken and stolen just to save many other lives. My hands are forever stained in my brothers blood, for this day many brothers of mine were killed.We are all brothers united in christ wether we accept this fact or not. I weep today and forever for these were brothers who i have slain.

War teaches us some very important lessons. Too bad we are such bad students.

*Applauds Leah* This really makes you think and tugs at your heart. Wonderfully written. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> I also agree with Heinzs. But we all seem to forget we let greed, power and our egos get the best of us and that's why we never truly learn our lessons because we're so much in to ourselves.
