Time of Remembrance and Reconciliation


Fifty years ago
We met on the battlefield
Man against man 
Brother again brother 
Everyone cried for blood 
The bullets  ripped through
Killing men on both sides 
The cannons were fired 
The towns were destroyed 
The  scorched earth  
Filled with dead bodies 
We saw hell on earth 
Thankfully the war came to an end 
People saw a glimpse of peace
Finally, the war was over 
But the pain remained for long years 
Finally, we met again 
Not as enemies this time 
For all of us 
Its a time of remembrance and reconciliation
