Wars—Who wins? What is lost?

Who can say for sure?

A load of corpses,

some tears shedded.


Many of them win some battles

but surely, they lose many lives.

Why would the system even care—

the system that initiates fights—

when there is no loss borne

by their children and wives?


Humanity creates rules

and humans themselves break them.

They create their own distinctions

and put their own restrictions 

and expect others to follow suit.


Everyone’s blood is red

yet they are different in their tongues.

This system functions

in a structure where everyone 

is unaware of their own power and strengths. 

Through wars,

they keep scoring more

on bodies and bloodshed.


Victory Or Defeat?
