death//pain

April 7, 2021

In number, there is power, or so they say but
In number also death arrives, every day and
I wonder why we send our men out to defend
Us when all that will happen is that they'll return
Dead and we'll mourn them in our beds, silently praying
For them to come back, but we know that they will never
So we send a few more to attack and they too will come
With blood on their thighs, their heads held up high
No life in their eyes. We will bury them and headstones
Will line the gardens behind the houses, flowers wilting
Gravestones sinking into the mud beneath as they
Slowly decompose into Earth, from where they were from
But I guess with death only comes so much pain
As the capability we have to love again

    Wow, I love this sonnet so much. The message is so strong and the ending is just awwwww. You did amazing at doing the turn in only the last two lines- haha, I gave up on doing it so late.

    Beautiful! This flows really nicely. I found this phrase to be particularly powerful: “their heads held up high/No life in their eyes.” Great work!!

    Heh, I guess that probably does seem weird that I know a handful of birthdays... XD Actually I usually just ask when it is. Connor and I were talking about it back before Christmas (i wanted to know who was older, lol). But I wonder when yours is now...... hmm.
