Footprints of War

by on December 15, 2023 :: 0 comments

Waking in an aftermath
Of a war,
My first lesson
Would be to kill death.
One survival kit
With healing time
Cannot cure
My aching survival.
The war,
Has completely
Killed time
And all the clocks
Have become mute.
I was a virtue maker
Now I want to
To kill the vice.
This temptation in me
Has to be also stopped
Before anything dies again:
Whether it is
Death, virtue or time
That is killed again.
I would erase
The footprints of war, instead.
Killing should be
Forever banned.
Not even death, has to be
Killed by our hands.

– Sushant Thapa
