Full Impact Of Horror In War (Acrostic)

Poem By Lenore Lee

Functioning is difficult when in shock
Untimely end has come for all
Lack of food
Lack of hope

I see no bravery only fear, only pain
Men kill, men die
People struggle to survive
Aid is needed everywhere
Courage is needed in the hopeless
Time passes slowly, too slow

Outside is unsafe
Families are blown apart

Honour is all we have left
Obvious pain shows on all faces
Rich and poor people suffer the same
Running away has become normal
Our lives are destroyed
Ruin has commenced

Abhorant the seeds of war that germinate only poison. A good political poem for sure and nice acrostic.
I agree with Isunge. You do sound older than 14. This is a really deep poem, I really like it! Have you known someone who has been off to war?
You sound older than 14, Wow!

Ah, now this one is a true gem. A lovely political poem, you have a mind for justice. War in any form is an ugly thing.

Monkeys looking like a man could be,
Climbing to get the fruit off of the tree.
Isn't that just like a human?
What makes them different to us?

A Sad Smile

I look upon my Nanna's shallow form,
Her sunken eyes show an unending storm.
Tubes stuck in her arms, neck and belly,
She strains her eyes to watch the telly.

Choose Life

I cry and I don't know why,
I vent and stress,
I struggle in a mess,
I scream and feel frustrated,

A Lady's Eye

A teardropp falls from a lady's eye,
Misery seeps into her being,
She gives a deep, breathy, longing sigh,
And dreams about believing.

True Beauty

When a pretty girl walks down the street,
All the people want to meet.
This girl with slim hips and golden hair,
This girl that everybody wants to stare.

The Sociopath (1)

I sat alone today and wondered if I could still feel,
Inside my soul I believe nothing is truly real.
Alone once again and it doesn’t even cause me pain.
I try to remember how to have blind belief gained.
