A Soldiers Prayer

07 Jul

I bled for you – would you for me?

I blessed a skin in blazing fuel
Then took a bullet in a duel of
‘He or I to Die.’

I often question ‘Why? ’
Do you?

My country was my life to give –
Would you for country cease to live?
Sinking in a mire of death,
You have no choice –
So while you’re still alive,
Rejoice!

I cried in failure – did you care?
And as I waned, were you aware of
What I did?
Fighting for my country while you hid
Behind your comfort back at home?

Still relaxed?
My wife and children are fading at the tomb.

    Wow Hannah! This is amazing! And very touching. I dont know how to explain it…… It very emotional and grafic at the same time, which is very rare nowadays. Did you write it yourself? 😉 thumbs up
