"if love be blind, love cannot hit the mark"- Shakespeare ( romeo and juliet )


Young boys and young girls
Leave to bring freedom to other shores
Many will fight many will die
All even before sunrise
Some will live and tell this tale
And others will be left on the battlefield
Young faces can be turned old
Just by witnessing the big and the bold
Children become men
Right then and there
War is dangerous
So handle with care
