"Sing your song of death, die like a hero." Act of Valor


Explosions left and right
People been dying all night
Confusion and disorientation
Has got the best of me
All I’ve got left is three shots
Don’t even know how it got to that
It was supposed to be an easy in and out
But now there’s bodies strewn about
It wasn’t supposed to be like this I swear
Now as I walk around
All I can think about is how it all went to hell
Smoke and fire fills my lungs
People’s bodies fill my mind
There’s nothing here to say we did it right
I wish I could re-wind it and do it again
But I will always have to live
With knowing there lives were in my hands

Having recently posted an article called Salute, I very much enjoyed this piece. Loved the visuals it gave me. Keep it up, man.
