2004 — 5th place — 5th grade

Becky Jarchow, Missouri


Inevitable war is,
It is what peace cannot be.
From the shadows of condemnation,
War comes without a sign.
We can not make war go away,
It is a blanket of depression.
War is here,
And it is here to stay.
People will always be different,
Unique and diverse,
With different opinions and hate,
Peace will not work.
How can we create world peace,
When life is a war itself?
Human beings seem to think,
War is the answer.
We always look,
At the pessimistic side of things.
Sadly war is here,
And it is here to stay.
