"I have shared my heart, and tolled its' burdens. I have see death, i have seen pain. I will laugh once more, and cry too. For i know now what I have to accomplish… i have to live".

They love and hate,
With trust in fate.
A way with words,
Can change the herds.

Through cold and sleet,
Through rain and heat.
They die in blood,
Sink through the mud.

Come home with death,
No life or breath.
In fear they wake,
With wounds that ache.

Their families they left,
A poor hearts' theft.
They wait to cry,
They live or die.

This piece was one of the first pieces that i wrote. When I read this to my friend she started to cry. I would like this poem to honor all of the soldiers fighting for our country. May this piece share the horror our troops feel.
