"The angels glorify; men scrutinize: angels raise their voices in praise; men in disputation: they conceal their faces with their wings; but man with a presumptuous gaze would look into Thine unspeakable Glory." - John Chrysostom

Silently waiting for the onslaught to occur,
Every soldier knowing that our lives’ will someday disappear.
We march through day and night,
Watching as our old lives slip through our fingers.

Great soldiers that we are,
But still our hour of death is finally at hand.
German soldiers threaten our lives as we fight our way to victory,
And even death cannot take the inevitable away,
As we fight where the generals said we would win.
And now only death awaits our failed victory.

Very powerful. I write about war and how pointless it is quite often. Is this about WWII?
