My parents

sent me here,

to Fight for

what They believe,

to be part of an Army,

an Army that aims

to put Terror in innocent

Hearts and to be

a Plague from

the East,

They say to die

in war is the most

honorable way to go,

but still I'm Scared,

I saw my Brother today,

it's been Three years,

and they have Stolen the

Light in his Eyes and

replaced it with a

Dull candle,

he now Lives like

a Refugee

in a crippled

building where they

taught him to Build

bombs,

One of which

I must Carry,

Pain and Destruction

is the Weight I bear,

a pain

that will Sacrifice

my body for Peace

of mind,

I am

Forced to a

Silence,

for which I am not

ready,

I have to much

to Strive towards,

I am not

Prepared to

Die at the hands

of Children like,

a Toy

Soldier

Utterly Beautiful. :) I like that it does not glorify intentions of the war or the war itself. You are an awesome writer :)

makes me sad if this is true for you. Even more to know family memebers put family members throught it. Your description is very good.
