    The War Is Gone

    I come back home and put my sword aside,
    Put down my shield covered with stains of war,
    And let my weary head rest from the fight
    At last enjoying calm of peaceful shore.

    It seemed the war had raged for many years:
    So many brothers fell but not for naught,
    So many mothers shed their sorry tears
    Now mixed ‘tween grief and joy in their distraught.

    But now the war is gone, pain is no more –
    The suffering and death we have been caused
    And needless pain I have caused to my foe
    Have brought me here where in my thoughts I’m lost.

    I look back and rejoice, for past is but a dream,
    The future is unseen when I am here,
    Surrendering my thoughts which only seem
    And finally becoming free of fear.

    The judgments, thoughts and fears that led to war
    It’s time I lay aside, leave far behind –
    In peaceful grace I don’t need anymore
    The heavy baggage of my restless mind.

    Beyond the good and bad is where I’m from –
    Now I forget the reasons why I fought,
    Forget the war, forget this world and come
    With wholly empty hands unto my God.

      Thank you, RhymeLovingWriter , this just came to me during a morning meditation. Recently I've been going through a stage where I can write 5-6 poems in 2 days, but then go flat for 1-2 weeks! Thanks to all of you guys here, I became considerably more critical of my own work, and I cannot write 2 poems a day consistently, as I used to before I joined this forum! Which I actually believe is a good thing!

              Anatolly, an emotion filled piece depicting the sorrow of war and the relief when it finally is gone. Mothers weeping for their battle scarred sons who did not make it back. Finally free of fear and judgment. A beautiful poem. I wish you peace!

                Hello Anatolly, Come judgement day, 'unto my God' and the sins of man. A very fine poem indeed, spiritually enhanced with insightfulness. Well done Anatolly. Regards, Tony.
