Breaking Open

13 Jun

by Mallory Angstadt

war
cold, brutal demeanor
petrifying the world
killing
people with families
with love
strength
character

war
a pit of death
dismay, terror,
breaking hearts
destroying dreams
lives are gone

peace
opening worlds
of joy
laughter
love.
Bitterness fades

peace
appealing
beautiful
alive
