WarA Poem by Amanda
Just something i thought of after watching a history channel thing.
As the last breath is drawn,
the quiet hush is heard.
So many people lay dead for many different reasons;
Some fought for freedom of others,
Others fought to keep them from being free.
Still others fought for their country;
Liberty, Justice and the American way.
Some fought for honor not only for themselves,
But their families too.
Going into a world unknown.
A place were you went in but may never come out.
The blood flowed from both sides.
A field turns red with so much blood.
Many lost arms and legs fighting for their own cause.
Some got diseases, infections and germs.
Some living long enough to see the war end
Then die from moral wounds.
Today we regard these men as hero's.
War time vets that gave their lives for our freedom.
Just as today we regard our men as hero's
Giving their lives for our freedom just as they did.
For the land of the free and the home of the brave.
