A man at war, is a man never at peace. This shall never change. The peace of war, is achieved only through death. For the dead are the only people to ever witness the end of a war. The war may end, but the scarring just begins. A lifelong struggle within. As the years go by, no matter how they try... the memory stays the same. The scars remind them to always check behind them. Never leave a room unchecked. A gun always loaded, turns to a gun full of regret. The man shoots his wife. \"I ended her life\". The man couldn't tell her from a dream. Ghouls haunt his mind, his vision blurred. Shooting slugs at his ceiling. All this occuring in his head, now the man is all but dead. All because the man can be taken from a war, but the war remains in the man.
