Colors of War

Crimson blood shed savagely and mindless

Violet skies overlook the onslaught

The Golden sun shelters from the cruelness

Gray and pale the moon shines on battles fought

Black, cold, and lifeless eyes gaze into space

Amber fires grow inside each soldier

Fiery, red death rears its ugly face

Scarlet ashes of war last and smolder

Cerulean rivers spoiled by blood

Auburn uniforms fall after each shot

Bronze stars on each shoulder, as good as mud

This blue uniform solves what words cannot

These colors of war more than speak to me

If it were you, which colors would you see?
