Why We Go to War - A Poem

I saw a bandwagon of soldiers
upon apocalypse
Their eyes was fixed on the fire
in hypnotic gaze
they marched into the fire

Why do we go to war?

ZODML Poetry Corner: Irresistible Love

By emmanuel.ndifon on Wed, 18/06/2014 - 21:30


Deep in the gulf of love I searched for you...
But the tall grasses of emotions wouldn’t let me find you...
Tears of compassion...
Love filled with passion
Times without number, I fight
On my toes to prove a point, is never a trot
Yet still, in all my strives I rot
Hoping to hold you, this time, very tight
