Soldier's Mother

Poem By RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

He joined the army
With much gusto and applause
For serving his country's
Soveriegnty so supreme
In the mind of citizens,
Trained on years to become
A full fighting soldier,
Transported to other counties
To fight thier wars,
His mother expecting
To return with full honors,
But acaptain of the army
Announcing the demise
Of her dear son, for causes
To the high placed ones'
Causes which was fought
By so many, yet continiung
The war on foriegn soils,
For the country's vain honor
Despised by most
Around the vast world,
She sat in front of the famed
White House, to stop the sacrifice
Of other mother soldiers sons,
Vainly looke down upon
By the might head of the country,
Giving looks of disdain
And despise, she fought
A war peacefully to end the war
Unwanted by one and all.
