War Undeclared(Chain Verse)

Poem By Cynthia BuhainBaello

War undeclared has been there existing,
From a seething anger underneath that grows.
Persistent and nurtured Hate boiling
Reaps the bitter grapes of wrath it sows.

Reaps the bitter grapes of wrath it sows,
War undeclared was written in the heart
Of those whose blood like cold water flows
Drowning their own with what they impart.

Drowning their own with what they impart,
Revenge is the price of self-destruction.
Death to their foe has always been a part
Of their people, their land, their lost nation.

A wonderful poem! I congratulate you for this beautiful poem on being selected as Poem of the Day!
Revenge is the price of self-destruction. Truer words have never been spoken, congratulations for POTD!
This member poem of today i dare say beats all the others. Lovely structure too
War is inbred in the bones of silence, leading the flesh by the leash of revenge...becoming a fate that is sealed with the signet ring of the past, great poetry...well deserving as poem of the day
" What is war good for" " Heal the world" Thank you Cynthia.

Our Eternal Home

I met a doctor who had cancer,
He could not believe it was stage four.
At sixty, to me he was younger,
He said he still had a lot to live for.

Nature's Dance

Under the skies of cloudless blue,
The rolling waves rush to the shore.
As if to race winged birds that flew,
And touch bare land just like before.

From The Windows Of Our Eyes

The view from the windows of our eyes
Differ from many others, we must realize.

Darkness for some spells seasons of loss,

The Eyes Are Windows

The eyes are windows of the heart
Wherein transparency will show
A myriad feelings to impart
From where in sadness, tears do flow.

The Truth Sets You Free

Did you know that Truth can be liberating?
It is being truly free and having the joy of living!
Knowing yourself inside out and not being afraid,
To be who you are whatever was the price you paid,
