War with the Heart

Life is war, with what and all..
Most leaves sores, on memories doors..
Battle scars worn, as medallion plates..

Sargent Major, onto the retired Colonel ..
What nightmares seen, with the naked eyes..
Some comrades, still left on battle fields..

Life is war, with what and all..
School play ground, to find positions stands..
To be known by all, as the Mr popular, charisma..

And all the girls giggle, smiles and twinkles..
With blush on sight, for views; oh you showoff..
Except with the one, to have admired the most..

Life is war, with what and all..
Knocking on doors, to get a foot in doors..
Promotion stands, on obstacles course..

Life is war, with what and all..
Time and age, drawn on Mexican stand.. 
Mirrors reflections, to death door shown..

Life is war, with what and all..
But for the most fought, none so revered ..
Like the one with the heart, baseline rate..

Oh for my heart, my heart, my soul, my love ..
Some times, I  just find in conflict zones..
I am  at war, wiv my own heart, with what and all..


  1. Yes sometimes we battle with ourselves and at war with our own demons, feelings, weakness etc in addition to what goes on in the world today. Very well put Kodjo.

  2. intriguing verse...sometimes life and love are both easily metaphored by war...you must first for both...and sometimes fight for them. nice one shot!

  3. This is great. I think we all are at war, no? Daily battles. Nice one shot. Love and Light, Sender

  4. admirable job...
    love the image and what it evokes in one's mind.

  5. The struggle for acceptance takes many forms, all of which connected, yet to vastly different degrees. Enjoy reading your work, Kodjo. Cheers

  6. love, life and war - at war with the own heart - struggling with things that happen - you found good words for expressing it

  7. like the one with the heart....yes, we seem to always be at war with that heart....very nice..and hope your life has peace...bkm

  8. Its so beautifully done... Loved your words...
    "Life is war, with what and all..
    Knocking on doors, to get a foot in doors.."

  9. It had the flow of a song as good poetry does. It had the meaning of the eternal conflict. Well written. Thank you, Gay (@beachanny)

  10. life is war, with what and all....each day can be a battle there is no question....i loved the mention of the playgrounds as well..thanks for sharing with one shot...cheers pete
