Unknown Solider

November 12, 2010
I am not the first.
I won't be the last.

Here I lie
In the desert sand
Dyed a sick red from my own blood.

Time has ceased to exist.

I am numb,
In fear
And in pain.

How could one bullet
Hurt so much?

I never thought,
I could never imagine,
That it could ever end this way.
So far from
My home
My family
My friends.
So far from everything I hold dear.

I am not the first to die in this desert land.
And I am certain I will not be the last.
