"Don't look at where you fell, but where you slipped"-Cicero


The soldier, once so strong

The soldier, once so peaceful

The soldier, once had

courage.

The solider, once smiled

Now, that smile is gone

Far and never shown

The soldiers frown has been

on his face so long, its

permanent

Pain in his head, so many

would rather be dead

Fear fills his head

Tears fall from his eyes

He can't see happiness and

he can't see the positive side

He's seen so many die,

families torn apart

The soldier cries himself to

sleep

He remembers the young

boy he saw today

So young and handsome

Yet the soldier saw blood

And a helpless soul

Lying there, body so cold

Never saw a sadder image

And the soldier cries and cries

He replaces happiness with

pain, he tries to stay positive

Yet he can't

His bed has gotten so cold,

his spirit died, so old

And the soldier cries


The author's comments:
When I wrote this piece, I thought of our soldiers and those defending our country. I thought of the pain and struggles they face. People say "oh its so cool to be a soldier,its not hard" and this and that. Well in my opinion, it is. To get in and pass basic training then lace up your boots and go out to other countries, people of that country who want you dead, it takes a lot of bravery. My respect goes to our soldiers. This is for them
