Never Ending

We are all cannon fodder
For the beast called 'War'

Wars are constant, on going
Since the dawn of man

All of us, young and old
Warrior's, Battlefield Earth

Where the beast called 'War'
Feeds on blood and gore

Innocents abound
From newly born to those aged

None are spared
ALL, a feast for the beast

Signed,
Warrior, Battlefield Earth

I like 'Never Ending' very much, based as it is on personal experience. A fine photo also.
I am honored to be Darwin's sister as I read one poem after another. Deep, piercing emotions. He is my oldest brother in a family of two boys and 5 sisters. Memories of childhood, working in the fields and family traditions of Christmas joys and parents love. Darwin, you are one of a kind.Thank you for sharing your poems with the world. Wish everyone could read and learn as they do. Love you my dear, dear brother!
It is a powerful write! Your comment on my poem led me to your poems. I am glad it did!
