We Fight Once Again My Friends
Shrapnel scattered along the street
Shattered glass brick and slate
Unspoken sadness hanging in the darkness
Never ending night.
Day's break from blackness
Sirens rattle covered windows
Metal sheets protect from explosions
From bombing planes, heartless men
Thirsty for approval they kill.
Death refuses to be ignored
He stalks the shadows, so easily found
For we cannot be seen by them
Who fly overhead.
Trains that take them to safety
Give out mixed emotions
Children who wish to stay with parents
Crave safety, security
But fear for family.
Fight for our country
Fight for our family
We are fighting
Though we want peace
Ironic in the saddest way
That we are fighting
Because we want the fight to end.
We cry for something to do
In this depressing time
A sound escapes our mouths
Though it's lost in the noise
Millions wait with baited breaths, eyes closed
Fingers crossed, hearts mangled though beating
We have won.
