He fell from the ditches
like an angel from haven’s gate
He sang a song of triumph,
as would the newest saint
He ran the length of the field
to see the enemy die
He never thought for a moment
to kiss humanity goodbye

Pretty good for a first time poet ;) I'm sorta biased when i read poems because I love poems that rhyme so that poem is probably as good as it can get in my books when it comes to poems that don't. Which is a compliment. Non-rhyming poems don't get that far for me.

When I read this I thought about the many who go to war everyday. I liked the poem and the rhythm it instilled my head. Few words with a bigger meaning I like these poems. Good job
