Favorite Quote:
Life is too short to be unhappy.


Every time I look up into the sky.
I do not see the man upstairs called God.
God can not be seen, he is way too high.
I can only see my beloved squad.

The ground I bear to step and to walk on.
It is not something I possess, not mine.
Pieces of grass are scattered on the lawn.
This sight to see is not very divine.

I am truly here for the one reason.
To make it clearly ever so simple.
I am only here because of treason.
So my nation will not ever rimple.

Please reach out to our very lonely sighs
For the many men in battle who die.

This Shakespearean sonnet consists of every line being 10 syllables. I felt like writing about war at the time.
