Prelude to War

Prelude to War

A Poem by Arrinae

A song for Moral


Time goes on and on again...

It will change many times, dear friend.

We'll be fine until the end...

In time our hearts will mend.


The fight will go on day by day...

It will happen many times many ways.

Some will fall to foes' blade...

Honor is not easily made.


We will go to meet our foes...

We must fight for what they owe.

The tide of battle always flow...

This is all we know.


Far and wide, we may roam...

It may be long till we come home.

We will never be alone...

We must tend the seeds we've sown.


Do not fret or show fear...

We fight for all we hold dear.

Once we know the path is clear...

You'll know when we're near.


We will meet again once more...

We will fight and our hearts will soar.

Our beliefs they shan't ignore...

Our tale shall never bore.


Love is found and also lost...

We must continue despite the cost.

Words thrown and insults tossed...

Many will feel the frost.


It may take a long while...

We will always go the mile.

Their plots are cruel and vile...

We take them on in style.


This battle shall not last...

Soon all will be in our past.

The future is far too vast...

We play the parts we've been cast.


We will bring the end of it...

We are a band of misfits.

They shall not omit...

We shall never quit.

Loved this! It seems like something the troops would sing on their way to battle so that they would stay in high spirits. Is this connected to the medic at all, or something completely different?

She did indeed. But I don't know if I'd ever find the right person to sing this piece in her voice. .. read more

You would probably have to hold auditions or something.
Wow, what a thrilling piece to read! The rhyming scheme was flawless and the whole poem just read so smoothly. I loved how the start of the poem was very, in my opinion, somber but by the end, it was fierce! All of the stanzas seemed to lead up to a grand finale--a determined pledge :)

Thank you for sharing this, I truly enjoyed reading it!
