I woke up and opened my eyes,

I look out the tent and see the sunrise.

The mountains all covered in snow;

It fills me with such sorrow.

I see rivers flow with great might;

But awful things then come into my sight.

Scattered through the dead brown grass;

Are shells made of dull brass.

As I lay here and take my last breathe,

I see my comrades go to their death.

I soon awake and see the pearly gates,

I'm excited to see what heaven awaits.

For my sacrifice has not been in vain,

Protecting freedoms has brought eternal gain.

I made this in about twenty minutes and I am in 8th grade, and I hope it can make it into the magazine so that I can put it in my portfolio as a senior, hoping I can get a scholarship. This whole idea just came to me, I thought of something else but I got a feeling and changed my mind.
