This Is No Victory

By Subash Lamichhane

Houses were turning to ashes

Children raising there hands to the sky

Tears dried in their face and arms stretched

The blaze making papers flying around

 

Women`s beating their chest`s and sobbing

Men laying down sleeping peacefully

Never to wake up, never to stand again

Brothers lying in shallow graves

 

The smell of death is still in the air 

Those remaining are broken

They fear it may be their turn now

Graves waiting for them

 

There is so much hate

There is only sadness now

Long hallow nights never seem to end 

This could be no Victory

This is not bravery

 

It`s the void song of war

War could never bring Victory

Slaying brothers never add peace

This is no bravery

This is no Victory
