SIT, STAND, AIM, FIRE!

SIT, STAND, AIM, FIRE!

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

The secret is to know WHEN to sit, stand, aim and fire.

"

SIT, STAND, AIM, FIRE!

Sit in silence in the darkness
Listen to the call of doom
Look for purpose in the dawning
In the sparse recumbent room

Stand for something to believe in
Ever making justice known
Soon redemption comes a-knocking
In reclusive somber homes

Aim for truth in undertaking
All that's said and all that's done
When the lights are left a-blinking,
You will know the victory's won

Fire at will in battles ling'ring
Rouge the face of victors' crown
Nevermore will evil prosper
Ever shall the right prevail!

Wonderfully explained and expressed poem! I could almost sing along when reading this for more than one reason. I do wish the letter size was bigger, thinking many would pass over this due to having to strain their eyes. I enjoyed this read a lot. Tyfs

You describe the outlook of someone who is very depressed....a person who can not see past the darkness. Everyone needs a purpose...a reason to put one step in front of the other. When a person finds that purpose, the battle is won and the light can stream in. As always, Sharon, your flawless rhythm and rhyme is a pleasure to read. Lydi**
