Motivational Poetry: Going Out With a Bang

Updated on June 27, 2013
Source


The bullets pierce me

Like hot irons melting my flesh

And still I run the gauntlet

Without regard to the life

That spills from each open wound


Blood lust and anger

Keep me focused on my objective

In my mind I can see the enemy

A sadistic son of a bitch

Laughing at the pain he has caused


I cannot allow him,

The satisfaction of winning this war.

I charge the line

Splaying mercenaries apart

Hacking and slashing

Anything standing before me


Battle raged,

To my very limits

I walk the last few steps

To stand before him

I look him straight in the eyes

He smiles as he unloads his clip


My body falls lifeless to the floor

He moves in closer

To revel in his kill

Only to find me laughing maniacally

“What’s so funny?

You’re about to die.”


I show him my hand,

Holding a grenade firmly

With the pin pulled out.

“Here’s to going out with a bang!”

      Hey you can't always win the war and live to tell about it, but you can always smile when you have the last laugh.
