The tear of a mother
For the smile of a child

The death of a spirit
For the life of a nation

The explosion of a volcano
For the fertility of a soil

The pain and the ache
For the pleasure after healing

The sweat today
For the triumph tomorrow

" If You Want Peace … Be Prepared To War "

Basic and to the point, you say a lot without saying much. Well written.

Hopefully we can discount the conclusion in the near future... at least that is my hope.

Thanks for sharing.

Maybe it is a boring poem because the thought is so well-known; but the metaphors are well-chosen and the verse so nicely made that is is a good expression of that thought.

  This is a philosophy which has stood the test of the ages. Its the trial and triumph of the human spirit. I like how you link the last line to the title. It brough to my mind the example of Jesus. All His life He taught that you can't get to Heaven without triumph over tragedies.

  good job, I didn't find any mistakes with spelling or grammer. the flow could use a little tweeking for poetry. I think it would make a good peptalk, if its for that than theres no tweeking needed ^_^.
