One Line

War is Hell
He wrote in a one line poem
He showed it to me once in tears
Yet it was all he could tell

He was silent most of the time
A raging lunatic more
Haunted by the memories of the past
Trying to prepare me for the harsh world

And I weep for him sometimes
Trying to understand his rage
It was a justified cause he would claim
The governments greedy ways

Please remember this lost soul
Gone forever, no more
To find peace in the sheer darkness
For the almighty betrayed
