This is a vig honoring the soldiers who keep us free...
About this creation
They are out there, fighting for US! We need to recognize then as our protectors...The Soldier.
A flash breaks the dark twilight,
Somewhere a soldier has no more sight,
A crack sounds in the silence,
A mighty man, brought down by violence
One eye looks down the barrel,
He is all in, totally focused, ignoring his peril,
The other eye is squeezed shut,
The gun kicks back, he slips and the stock hits him in the gut,
The sound of him falling resounds,
Bringing up the gun he fires three rounds,
With a trained eye the enemy spots him,
The soldier screams as he loses a limb,
Thus is the story of war,
It goes through history as lore,
We water it down and make it seem like fun,
But it is very, very real…as is a gun,
Let us now recognize the armed forces,
The ones who keep us safe from when they rode horses,
The soldiers who protect our homelands,
Sacrificing their bodies, many quickly meeting their ends.
Why don't they get the honor they deserve? They are out there fighting day after day while we live in our large, cozy homes going through life worrying about stubbed toes and sprained ankles. The soldier is risking his LIFE. So let us give them the honor and the glory that they so richly deserve.
We look at our TVs, we see hungry people and turn the channel. This world is greedy, selfish, and ungrateful.
2 Timothy 3:2 says this:
"Men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, and unholy."
That says it all doesn't it? Let's turn the people around us and honor them, and most of all, our soldiers fighting for us.
Okay, so I listened to all your reviews and made v.2. Click here see the page. This is still the real page though, v.2 does not have the poem and stuff. Thanks for your reviews!
Good job reminding people of what's really behind all those fun and games we love. And lets not forget the brave men who keep our country safe while it tries to destroy itself from the inside out. Hooah!
Shouldn't we try to stop the fighting and concentrate on bigger things, that just might involve everyone? You know, stop poverty, stop world hunger, get everyone a decent education... Wait, that's a form of communism, and everyone hates communism. Never mind, keep the war on. Oh, btw, you might want to have some more people in that.
I have to admire the work you put into your pages. Nice job. I still don't care for poem's, especially the serious ones, but the plight of the soldier is a often heard and easily ignored message. If you get into reading history those poor saps didn't fare non-too well no matter where or when they served. Sent to war. Don't die if you are lucky. Come home. No jobs, no help. Repeat often through history. Ignore the wails. garth
Very good poem and an extremely eliquent touch with the scripture. 4/5 because the vigs not very good [not SNOT, (I know, lack of pieces) landscape not very good, (should be like Iraq *and I know about the lack of pieces issue*) and we can't see everything going on this vig (which means it isn't fully complete)]. Props for the poem though and the bible verse. Perhaps a V.2?
