Soaked in War

Entry for the The Surf Excel Matic #SoakNoMore Contest by Indiblogger and Surf Excelmatic

We soaked for months in mud

In blood.

Fighting

Someone else’s war.

Soaked for months in loneliness

Loveless,  lifeless lives.

Thankless.  Sometimes.

We soaked for months in hate.

Hating them,

Their leaders,

Their religion,

Their beliefs.

We soaked for months in death.

Their’s,

Ours.

We soaked for months in vengeance.

Frustration.

We soaked for months in statistics.

How many we killed,

They killed.

We are weary now,

We yearn for peace.

For home.

We want to soak no more

In war.

We just want to wash away the stains

The blood.

The mud.

The guilt.

The hate.

The Oil.
