The Wars We Fight

When Ego become eyes,
And the heart loses sight,
Then blood loses its worth
And is spilled with hate on earth

The brothers who fight wars,
And the fathers who lost all,
Become memories etched with tears,
That soaked in sacrifice and prayers.

The men who fight wars,
Never deserve to fight at all
They fight and die for love,
In the wars forced by their lords!

Mighty eye of the Karma,
Watching and weighing their sins,
Innocents will attain salvation,
While criminals would see their end!
