To those who lost relatives in the wars...

Roses are red, and blue is a different hue, but together, they can make anew...
Violet is born, so innocent yet, but when time comes to time, there won't be room to rhyme...
Violet marches on, as war does too, what does it mean, to who?
Violet is home, the next day he is not, off to war, to return or not...
But violet is strong, and so he persists, violet comes home, but to be amiss...
He tells tales of horror, running and sweat, his mind was clouded, as though it had went...
His friends lay dead, as he lives yet, so many lives gone, never again to be met...
Sure he is home, but to what extent, violet is changed, soon to repent...
Born in a world, doomed to fall, the choices he had, to few led to flaw...
Roses are red, blue a different hue, violet is red, violet is blue...
