Just be honest. Say whatever you feel. I thought of writing this based on the concept that man is born evil, but with the capability of change. Best of wishes to you all! ;)

The Dark Truth

Upon waking up I saw,
Cracks on dried up soil,
Leafless trees burnt halfway through,
A paradise turned to hell.

Smoke covered the area;
Blood splattered from countless lives.
Survivors held corpses of loved ones,
With tears of rage, agony, and despair.

I looked at my stained badge,
That I once wore with pride;
But now my blood stained uniform,
Only emits the truth.

We sacrifice men for land.
We sell souls for fame and glory.
We can only rely on those with good hearts,
In a world born from the entity of sin.
Just a simple poem from a soldier's point of view...

    definitely hit me hard (especially since I just watched Avengers: Infinity War!!) I love how honest and yet shattering the soldier's perspective is xx
