The Long War


I fell at the first moment of battle
But I didn't get up until the end,
As I scavenged for food I found a foe
But we quickly became friends,

We made our way down a road together
And realized war didn't solve matters
We talked and laughed, forgetting the battle
And letting ourselves scatter

We were a mirror of one another
Like we fell and died and escaped to hide
All this time obligated to abide,
Why'd we fought on different sides?

I don't recall the conflicting matters
But all of us had fought so helplessly
It wasn't until we found his friends,
And they hung me for being The enemy.
