Social Justice Poetry

Because… War | A Social Justice Poem by Lee Anne G. Hall

Because the brave 

are so often the young
Because those sending 

are never those going
Because it isn’t the war 

but the peace
And with reasons blurred 

by time and tears
We realize – or we should
– the true cost
Vowing better guardianship
 of
the young and the brave 
Acknowledging our place
in the peace
