War Poet

I am the man who looked for peace and found
My own eyes barbed.
I am the man who groped for words and found
An arrow in my hand.
I am the builder whose firm walls surround
A slipping land.
When I grow sick or mad
Mock me not nor chain me:
When I reach for the wind
Cast me not down:
Though my face is a burnt book
And a wasted town.

by Sidney Keyes

We're not pro-war; we're not necessarily anti-war either. We're just here to try and understand a little bit about the impact it has on people's live and why it inspires such powerful expressions of creativity.
