MissSilverWolff Posted May 28, 2010 Report Share Posted May 28, 2010 Hallo, I figure to bring these up. I hope that I can have a topic to my stuff. I'm not individualizing any of my poems since they all have similar moods, themes and tones. I do not write rhymed poetry; they're more of a free verse-ish stuff... enjoy. First one: Dying on the Battlefield- dedicated to soldiers of the American forces (note: this was written 5 years ago, when i was patriotic. Sorry American peeps). I am a soldier, fighting for freedom of my country For my country, I have served for only a month No one could banish me from my homeland When I die, I know I'll go to heaven Heaven is a sweet, serene place to be But, it's not what I think about now I think about my family and friends back home They are my inspiration to this terrible place But, I live and die for what is right Let me stand still and tall for the starred and stripped flag Everything will go to the place I stand Here I stand; saying my allegiance to my country I hear bombs and automatic guns fire My heart is thumping like a thundering of a storm My eyes watch my friends die with wounds of blood Once, I reached the hospital to be healed Everything grew dim as I started to die by mother's side They tell me that I'm not going to make it So, I died in this cool and dark place where I belong I showed allegiance to my country, powerfully Surely I noticed that my friends are praising me for serving No one could stop my heart from giving up Dying on the battlefield is what I do for me and my country When I walked the Earth, I knew what to do Now, my walk of life has ended at age 20 I'm proud of serving my country, family and friends I was free and I wanted to serve to make me much more free Surely, everyone will miss me, but they will be thankful for freedom Signed, Silver....
