I wonder if she wears makeup;

that soldier on the field

fighting with her life,

with her own free will.

Fighting for our country,

for our freedom,

for our rights

wondering if she’ll live or not

to see another night.

I wonder if she’s sad

thinking she may die,

never to see her family again;

the thought’s sad enough to cry.

I’d be pretty sure she’s proud though

whether she wears makeup or does not.

For the reasons why she’s fighting

there’s a lesson to be taught.

i love this poem! i think it is so creative, but i would watch the rhyme scheme, because it goes, "fight for our country/for our freedom/for our rights.", and that makes 3 lines instead of the 2 u were using. and also, "field" and "will" don't rhyme... it's no big deal, though, jsut something to watch for the future.

i never read a poem like this, and i love it! i even love the title! good job and keep writing!
