A Bigger Wall


It comes in waves
Sometimes big sometimes small
Endlessly  they pile up
Bang against me till I fall
I try to stand but fail
On hand and knees I crawl
Trying not to drown in it
Even my breathing starts to stall
My heart beats a weary way
I cry to god to hear my call
Thinking I can't go another day
Strength I need to stand tall
My faith will help me build
Against this grief a bigger wall

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
