There For Us All


To hear the drums from the marching band
Step by step
The Military united each hand
For in 1914 these hands fought
They fought as one, that's what they were taught
I felt I had been there I was holding back tears
The dignity of Our Soldiers fighting their fears
They were there for us one by one, ... as one
They learnt to fight, to shoot a gun
Tears were shed for many years
By Soldiers, their families. Would they return, these were their darkest fears
As The Corporal told stories of courage yet pain
Too many, wounded, dead. Lives that never had even began
So to all you Brave Soldiers who united us all
Thank You
You gave Your Youth. So future generations would not fall.

'We Will Remember Them'

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

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,
