The battles,
the cries.
Weary soldiers,
with home-sick eyes.
Their bodies weak.
Their eardrums tremble.
The sounds of gunshots, forever linger.
They cant sleep.
Will they make it home,
or will they die tonight?
Sacrifices great,
for you and for I.
So commend those broken soldiers.
Pray they make it home alright.


The author's comments:
The poem speaks for itself.
I believe that we take way too much for granted these days.
