A poem about nature and the military. Some of it is my opinion and some of it is what i grew up around sorry if this insults anybody.


A Flower for Every Soldier

By Jimmy Glenn

5 April 2017

Nature is life

Every flower, a soul

For every person who strived

Dying in darker ways than coal

The flower represents love

For every soldier fallen

who did what they could to shove

People out of power, like Stalin.

Our people are sad

The soldiers aren’t trusted

The people are mad

Because they did what they were ordered

That flower stands tall

No matter how much the wind tries

It will not fall

And it fights as it cries.

Another grows by it

And they support each other against

What the wind has, wit.

Yet they fight, still hence.

Many begin to grow

They are a family

And want to show

How they are wrong in the military

Hundreds grow in one place

They all gain strength

As they interlace

And many of them at great lengths

The animals feed off of them

A fuel to keep going,

Letting them free from their pen

Always supporting

People walk over

Squishing them flat

They have no mover,

They become a mat

But again they stand tall

Feeling the pain

But refusing to fall

Even though they know they will again.

The key is that nature’s to stay

Nothing stays gone

That’s natures way,

At least not for long.
