The Empty Shoes of War

Those are the shoes
of a silent soldier,
no longer polished bright.

Those are the shoes
of a little girl,
who lost her life last night.

Those silver shoes?
They’re wedding shoes
that will never see a wedding day.

Those scruffy shoes?
They’re running shoes
of a boy who tried to run away.

Look hard and long
at these empty shoes.
Think long and hard ‘bout war.

Think about those who will never, ever,
love and laugh,
marry and be merry,

or wear these empty shoes . . .
                                                 anymore.
