Soldiers never die for nothing ........

They may die a violent death filled
with the white pain
of terror

Or of the slow slow lifetime
of mental torture
guilt and immeasurable
memories

They might even die waving the
flag of mother country's
freedom

Or of the misdirected intentions
of political pride
and passion

They might chose to die for even you
and your misguided ideals
of innocence

Or for love of humanity

But a soldier never dies for nothing !
