Bullets flying through the air
Heroes marching without fear or a scare
Mortars whizzing past them in the sky
The wounded staying strong without a cry
Must keep marching forward into the hot sun
Not stopping until the battle is won
Blood stains the soil as it dries
Keep strong knowing the enemy will not rise
Sacrifices scattered on bodies in the form of scars
The fallen remembered while glancing at the stars
Courage flowing through veins and every breath
Not giving up fighting without fear of death

I listen to music to get my mind going. I just listened to the song and just began typing.
