Look

Look at the old man
Staring back at you
With the world in his eyes
From his hospital bed
Knowing he is going to die

Look at the young mother
With her beauty to see
Soon to lose a part of her
Maybe to save her life
At the cost of her breast

Look at the baby in the cot
With all those years ahead
Cruelly now taken away
A young life, like a candle
Blown out in the wind

Look at the soldier, the hero
Who fought to protect us all
Fighting to stay alive, for his country
Only to come back safe and sound
To finally lose a war he couldn't win
