Veterans And War

Veterans and war are just like brothers,
You can’t have one without the other.
We can wish for peace, we can continue crying, but as long as there is war, there will still be dying.
You cannot have “Us” without having “Them,”
Sometimes they are enemies, other times friends.
As long as we feel that there is “Me” and there is “You,”
Conflict and violence will always ensue.
If we can see ourselves in the eyes of another,
Then we will be sisters, we will be brothers.
But as long as we hold to our limited views,
We are trapped in the past-never anything new.
Can we open our eyes, and see beyond the veil?
Only Wisdom can guide us, and only time will tell.
