This is just a small piece of writing, one that I did for a soldier going through deployment and the trials of facing war and missing the love of his life...
The ashen ruins that lay a waste, I turn away, in my haste. The stars cast a pleasant glow, in the midst I see a true hero.
In the dusty air which stings my eyes I lay down my gun and begin to cry. My heart is searching, longing for your touch. But I’m trapped in this world of hate. All around me I hear the noise, the battle rages on; I have no choice. I stand up tall and carry on; ever a soldier, ever strong.
