A Century Passed

We sometimes struggle,

Within ourselves,

With one another.


Emotions conflict,

Like dueling siblings.

Nations rage with anger,

Frivolous reasoning.

Or justified animosity.


Moments of heated passion,

Erupt into seemingly infinite

Periods of conflict.


Lives erased, cities reduced.

Humanity pauses.

Morality? Peace?

Will it happen again?


A century passed,

Do we still remember?

Have we learned?

From the fields of Flanders,

To the Depths of the sea.

Countless unknowns buried.

Endless reminders.


Peace will ultimately reign,

Humanity chooses it.

Conflict ended.

A century passed.
