What I remember about that day

the blood, the bodies

I also remember the smells

gore, rot, and flies

I saw my friends on the ground

blood on back, painful to the eyes

I heard the sounds

shouts, cannon, gunshot, and the worst, mourning

I felt an avenging passion to get back

on the men that killed my brothers

And yet we still trudge on,

trying to find a solution to our nation’s struggle

and we still think we are making progress

by killing our nation’s men
