The World is at War

The world is at war.

It’s us against them.
The ones with weapons of different kinds versus the ones whose heart is filled with courage which is one of its own kind.
The ones whose hands are covered with drops of innocent blood versus the ones who fold their hands to pray.
The ones who know how to shed only the blood of others versus the ones who know how to stand by others when they shed tears.
The ones who have lost their humanity versus the ones who have lost their fear of death.
The ones who have decided to end peace versus the the ones like us who refuse to let them put it to an end.

It’s a battle. A long one. One which isn’t bound by any rules.
One which we must win. Its us against them.

They may have the power to destroy the things that we love. But we have the determination to build them again and again.Over and over again.

Until the war is over. Until all they are left with is defeat.
Until peace prevails forever. Until they surrender and lay at our feet.

The world is at war.And this time, we must win. And we will.
