five million gone
five million gone and even more are never to be.
what have we lost while we pretended not to see.
there are the friends that we will never have
and there is the wisdom that will never be passed.
there is the love that we will never receive
and countless possibilities that we can never achieve.
so as the great war continues on, let us all mourn,
for five million are already gone.
