"Crying doesn't indicate that you're weak; Since birth it has been a sign that you are alive."


Veterans have served their time in hell,
Emerging on the sunny side of pain,
Taking with them always shards of night.
Even in the midst of their delight,
Rich in all that love and luck can gain,
Armies rise that know their weakness well.
Now death joins the damned ones in the dell
'Ere our circle seal them from the slain,
Sundering their longing from our light.
Days and years diminish not the blight,
As only those who've been there can explain,
Yet walking by the side of those who fell.
