Poem - Silent Wars

The poem “Silent Wars” was inspired by a friend's meme. It stated that the struggles of others is are unknowable. Public faces are highly censored, guarded, and do not reveal the true nature of the individual.


Silent Wars

Silent wars behind the hills
unknown outcomes out of sight
hidden from prying eyes
only I see the fight.

Guerrilla actions behind the masks
skirmishes with demons dark
as angels cross the swords
for a mere mortal soul.

Spotlights seen in the sky
searching for sanity.
Radar screens reveal the world
outside the private gates.

Propaganda trickles out
from behind battle lines
words meant to ease the mind
while the war rages on.

The silent war never ends
while the struggle carries on
across the psyche of the damned
hiding pain never shared.
