Final Soliloquy


Gun shots ringing, blood splattering
Debris and rubble falling from the skies
Hiding in trenches mud to my knees
My life flashing before my eyes.

Have I truly lived life the way I wanted
Or have I been so blind?
I have experienced all that I can?
Am I willing to part with what’s behind?

I wanted to have my whole life change
Begin as a boy, come back a man
Sign up and join the war, become a hero
That was my initial plan.

Yet as watch men like me fall and die
My body trembling by the sight
Deep down I feel this sudden fear grow
A horrid sensation of fright.

At eighteen I fast forwarded life to be a man
Abandoned my youthful days
Losing all chances to experience life
My innocence now no longer stays.

But now I must keep an adult mind
That is the only way
So that I can return to my youthful life
That is only if I see another day.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
