|I love the imagery that you use to describe the cycle of life as a war.
The only suggestion I have for you is that if you are going to use the ellipses in the second stanza, take out the fourth period. The fourth in grammar means you aren't going to finish the thought. Continuing after makes the piece look jumbled. At the end of the piece if you want to leave it so the reader is guessing, just leave it at the fourth, the fifth period just seems excessive.
I do love the ending. It is so very encouraging and leaves the reader on a positive note.
