Their children and grandchildren did not know the value of peace; they knew not the price of war. How ironic that the haven they live in was bought by bloodshed and violence.
Only those who fought would truly appreciate, I guess. I notice the plethora of “action” movies that sensationalise and glorify war or large scale fighting and I could not help but wonder – do we really want violence that much?
If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.
The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
- your poem / prose must contain this week’s word. The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
- the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.
