A Soldiers Lullaby


So many scars,

attitude is not to be messed with,

strength of a soldier,

and people stay out the way,

my ambitions as a man,

walking to the field to die,

nefarious they call me,

reincarnation flows through me,

broke but will never choke,

rise above the thoughts surrounding me,

when the time comes to die embrace it,

fear shows weakness and hardships create enemies,

fighting for all eternity,

the war may end but the man will live it everyday,

I won't die even when they carry me,

holding onto a false hope as the blood is being spilled from me,

horrid screams follow me,

chaos covers me,

fury and fire is normal to see,

explosions is music to me,

fate is apart of me.

    in the end we are groups in the same humam race being taught our duty: to kill the people born in a different place or into a different background. I susppose it has many meanings when we are said to be killing ourselves in war. thanks for leaving it in the broad aim, you understand its the only way to give a tribute without being a hypocrite. good job.

    Very deep about the life of a soldier. My brother is one and I can only imagine the things he sees that I never want to. (Report) Reply

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
