|The Soldiers Of Grief A Poem Written By A Nairalander For Our Fallen Soldiers by Slimzzy00: 12:17pm On Jan 19|
They put on the garment of courage
and put behind the garment of cowardice.
Crouch like a toad they lay in the cold night full of whispers .
Armed with the cold weapons of destruction .
Protecting us from the pangs of terrorism .
Their families kept their anxious gaze never to know if
they will be back knocking at the door
They look forward to the light glare of their children with arms outstretched waiting to feel the warmth of their souls
Coupled with their giggling voices.
Oh! Their wishes was just a vision in a fool man's dream
Their brave soul now lie in lifeless in a cold blood
With battle wounds and injuries
Carting away their brave souls !
Ignorant of the wailing and mourning of their loved ones.
Heaven awaits them for had died on the right path.
