Shall we speak of battles fought?
Of wars yet unwon?
Or victories earned by small steps?

Shall I hide behind the lines
While others march on?
Or shall I take my position?

Will you cradle me when I fall?
Shall I cradle you?
Or will we carry ourselves off the field?

Why do we fight so?
Why do others fight us?
Sensless injuries on endless plains.

My brother, we speak in riddles
When we return to our homes.
Family, friends, feel but don't understand.

We live out our lives, battle after battle.
War after war.
We don't know why, yet we press on.

We are comrades put together.
Family not by blood in our veins.
By the blood we wipe off each other.

Peace and love, fellow comrades.

With your pen, you have captured our field of battle, so profoundly.

We are comrades put together.
Family not by blood in our veins.
By the blood we wipe off each other.

"By the blood we wipe off each other."

Can't shake that image.....don't know if I want to...that one will stick with me...for a while.


"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
George Eliot
