Poppies Red






As poppies sway 
Upon the breeze
Warm in the summers sun

-
Their silken petals
Fluttering 

Speak
-
These words for
Everyone
-

"Our colour is the blood you shed
And when the battles done
You'll learn one day that petals red
Mean wars are never won"

I, like the view said...

wars are not won

how very true

that makes me sad

I love the way that words can evoke feelings, but I need to protect myself from that too

(but now here)

Thats because words are feelings
Look after yourself
