War Is A Waste
Jiah Daniell-strange, Grade 8, St Augustine's College
Bullets fly, Men die.
War has wasted so much time.
Dash through fire, Run through flame.
Most people don't live through the pain.
As I watch, staring helplessly into the battlefield,
Shells go flying all around me.
Blood splashes everywhere.
All these different people,
With their own stories,
All come together to fight just because
one country gets annoyed at another,
then friends have to fight friends.
Aren't we all friends on this earth?
War isnt't just a waste of time,
It is also a waste of lives.
As we fight,
All I can do is watch,
Friends die before my eyes.
