Your poem tells the truth. It is where you are standing. Here in the USA our Soldiers are heroes. But standing in a foreign land. The people of that country see men who want to steal and take. A outstanding poem. You wrote the truth.

This work radiates what you’ll find on both side of the fence, what some people find right can be wrong, for most of us we want to do what’s right, I think you’ve done a great job in bringing this together in such a short piece
Excellent write.

A truthful poem. In one country the men are heroes and in the other they're the enemy. Great poem.

Poetic expressions that define more than the simpleness of a word like...Soldier...

Posted 13 Years Ago

Very thought provoking, clever piece...beautiful example of a diamante. Your two opposites, soldiers and terrorists, terrifyingly blend together so easily. Great form and powerful emotion in this piece...nice work!
