Dan Hanosh’s The Moon Also Rises
dreams to come and thoughts of tomorrow

Only Suffering

War started today,
our missiles banged
into Baghdad,
disappointment has crept
into my thoughts,
for my country
started the war.

We watched as
if we were innocent,
viewing scenes of death and
dying, strategies were
discussed as in sport,
all are guilty, like
the nazi’s, for not saying
no, for not protesting.

Each action will
be recorded, remembered,
discussed, so it will
never happen again, but
it will, it always does,
I wonder, who will be
remembered as being
right, no one yet knows.

I am saddened,
saddened that we forgot,
that war is hell and death
is forever, that prisoners
are tortured and war
never brings peace,
only suffering.

  1. This poem is amazing, Sir. You’ve said so much using economy of words and the truth you speak of is as painful as a bullet between my eyes. Very powerful and poignant piece that all Americans should read. Kudos!
