In the end of all ends, all war results is blood not worth losing.

(Author's note: When I am stuck in class on a rainy day and it's a free period, this is the quick result. I know there are a lot of mistakes and misunderstandings in the poem, yet still...)

The lands, they were sacred,
had to keep a secret.
One so cruel and reckless and wicked,
where the land's people were wiped out like a wicket.
The seasons were one long winter,
and the rare sun striked through like a splinter.

The woods were nothign but a graveyard,
the trees were leafless, bent guards/
The insects scurried amongst them, imposters,
fugitives from the living, the dead's hosters
At night, you would hear the cheers of joy,
the screams of pain, the cries of a boy.

For, once, in this land, were streets of laughter,
until the content family in the corner lost their daughter
to the dark, when it conquered and promised cookies to the innocent,
and spoke rage, tragedy, merciless in fluent.
Every sword they raised,
every sould that bowed, once,
is now buried underneath
a b r o k  e n vow.

Poignant, powerful and dark, about a very dark, tragic topic, with lots of great rhyme and flow.

Excellent work, Grammarbully!

Really?! That's amazing, thank you so much. And to think I'd felt it was quite vague...

I liked the vagueness of this one. Real gritty and dark. Sometimes it's nice to write in a more melancholic tone, even if I have trouble doing so myself :) Really good poem!
