I Want To Know

by Joan Serratelli

I want to know
who won the war
who fought the battle
that ended it all.

I want to know
who was defeated
who took home the spoils
that victory brings.

I want to know
was it fought to the death?
was it worth
the pain it wrought?

I want to know
that it's over
so that I can return
and settle the score.

Oh, did this poem ever catch me and pull me into its vortex. Just as I was saying, "Yes, yes!" to myself at the end of the third stanza ... I had to stop abrubtly and say, "Oh my, yes .. so true!" after I read the last stanza. Oh this one holds a lot of punch, Joan.
