They didnt choose

Can you imagine
a tragic life
bombs and fire
guns and knifes

the iraq kids
dont have a choice
neither a word
nor a voice

They look around
and see whats missing
all they can do
is keep on wishing

they have to suffer
for our fight
they have to die
thats not right

Real life horrors
Its not a show
They didnt choose
for they didnt know

I love writting soldier poems.There is so much behind their uniform all you have to do is see beyond the fights!!
