Found Poem

War is 
Thick and numbing
Shot away chunks of meat below the ribs
It wasn't to kill, it was to hurt
Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to.

War is hell
Soldiers begging for the noise to stop
Pieces of skin
Still alive, though just barely, just in the eyes
Seemingly hollow and unattached
Your mind will hate it
Eyes will take it in

War is mystery
The aliveness makes you tremble
You're never more alive than when you're almost dead.
Without morals
Civility blends into savagery
They were afraid of dying but they were even more afraid to show it

Almost everything is true, almost nothing is true
A true war story cannot be believed
The crazy stuff is true
The normal stuff isn't.
You can't tell a true war story,
It's just beyond telling.
It's about discovering who you are

A real life horror movie
War is not true
War cannot be false
You don’t care for the truth.
