This is just a Poem I wrote for a poetry assignment and some of my mates thought it was good so I decided to post it here…Enjoy :).
[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=5]Brothers in arms
[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]I see the gaunt faces,
[CENTER]Marching through the streets.
Torn from their brothers,
Together where they sleep.
Innocents have suffered,
Honourable soldiers dead.
Politicians at home,
Safe from harm and dread.
What happened to the soldier’s pledge?
Protect the weak and innocents.
Now we fight in unjust wars,
Bringing wrath upon our shores.
Young men sacrificed their lives,
[CENTER]Torn from their children and their wives.
I plea to thee lay down your bloodied arms,
Return to your family and your farms.
I see the gaunt faces,
Marching through the streets.
Standing with their brothers,
The price that’s paid was steep.[/CENTER]
