Editor's note: It's just one of those humane feelings of not appreciating what you have until its no longer there. War is never the answer to any conflict, and the loss greatly outweighs the gains!

We take peace for granted

Its true value a mystery

Until it's gone,

Taken by the cold grips of War,

War comes and goes like the waves of the ocean

It brings no warning

And requires a payment fee,

The lives of many

War taints its color red

To make its presence known

It drinks up your hope

And fills it with grief

Like it can come, war can take leave

But to achieve that

Takes strength and unity
