I was eating lunch outside on campus today and someone had put a sticker up that said Endless Fight but less was crossed out with the word the over it. To then say End the Fight. I then went to World History and we were talking about about of different wars and there out comes. That sticker kept going through my head so, this is what came out.

Endless fight
How long will it go on?
End this fight
How many more do we have to lose?
 
How long will it go on?
How many have to get involved?
How many do we have to lose?
What are we to gain?
 
How many have to get involved?
How many have to have a say?
What are we to gain?
What are we to lose?
 
How many have to have a say?
Why do they have a say over us?
What more are we to lose?
Besides our loved ones.
 
Why do they have a say over us?
Why now?
Besides our loved ones
Will they come here?
 
Why now?
Why did it have to happen now?
Will they come here?
For our land to be destroyed
 
Why did this have to happen now?
Will we be able to recover?
For our land to be destroyed
Like we have done to them now
 
Will we be able to recover?
How long till we recover?
Like we have done to them now
How many times do we have to go back and forth?
 
How long till we recover?
How long till the end?
How many times do we have to go back and forth?
Why can’t we just stop?
 
How long till the end?
Endless fight
Why can’t we just stop?
To end this fight
 
Endless fight
How long will it go on?
End this fight
How many more do we have to lose?
