I found myself lying on the ground.
Hurt, wincing in pain.
I looked around,
I saw bodies, blood and flames.
I heard people laugh, cry out of love and hate.
I saw them mourn, saw them celebrate.
I realized we’ve won the war.
Also learned that winning is hard.
I’m glad we came this far.
Still in pain, I somehow smile.
Lay myself down and close my eyes.
Happy, that I’ll see my loved ones.
Happy, that I’ll get to lay down my guns.
But as I open my eyes to what is real,
I’m in the same battlefield.
And yet, once again,
I see happiness and pain.
Yes, time flies.
I close my eyes.
Desperately hoping to go home.
But I wake up in the same war zone.
Yes, I’m stuck in this loop forever.
A soldier’s life gets no better.
Don’t know if I’ll ever be together
With my parents, children and wife.
I guess, this loop is my life.
