It’s Not Your War (poem)


By: Marc McMahon

My war is different than your war

You may never understand

Many say you dont care to

My war cannot be won

My enemy cannot be defeated

Only put under arrests

Primitively held at bay

By the power of a choice

My war has no boundries

No borders and no walls

No battlefield map or

Enemy GPS cooridinates

My war is differant

Than your war

In my war

To secure victory

One must first embrace defeat!
