Lost Souls

By John Swainston, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By John L. Swainston
VA Medical Center--Kansas City, MO

Mothers lose their

sons and daughters.

 

Husbands never return home,

taken not by their maker, but by

soldiers and their weapons of death.

 

Aggressor or defender matters not,

they both end life.

Destroy an apartment building, a

maternity hospital, a cancer ward.

 

This has a name–Collateral Damage.

Death coming to those not in uniform.

 

Too many are dying;

too many are dying.

 

One man wants what is not his.

 

Even those that live have a

lifetime of memories–nightmares.

Never forgotten.

Haunted until their death.
