Image for the poem two thousand soldiers

two thousand soldiers

two thousand soldiers have died
while fighting the war in Iraq
and there is nothing anyone
can do to bring our men and women back

oh, how heartbreaking it is
to keep seeing the death toll on the rise
the mothers and the fathers
husbands and wives whose pain intensifies

i can not help but wonder
when it comes down to it is it worth this
the families being torn up
as the names of heroes increase the list

I wrote this poem during the war in Iraq. My heart broke to see so many lives destroyed at the time.
