deaths joke

you ever face death
it changes you
not for the better
you live in fear
that his face will come
and the grinning skull
will be the last thing you see
i don't want this to end
life has so much
and i want everything
don't let me die
its not my time
not at this age
i have to be older
please god why
why this way
its just not right
run child he tempets me
i stand there
frozen in fear
reaching that hand for me
then he laughs just a joke
this isn't right
don't toy with me
god i'm a joke

Soldier 2

so many want to hurt others
thinking war is the way to go
trust me friends its not
all it does is hurt
and long ofter your gone
read what i have wrote before
you can see it does a soul no good
look what type of man it made me
one that has done so wrong in life
i'm sorry for what i did
i wish i can change it
but that pain is mine
please don't repeat it

look at the stars
why do they hold sway over me
only thing that makes me feel at peace
i want to reach them
hold them in my hands
and share with the world
look what they can do
make a torn man whole
think what they can do for you

alone as always
looking for a fight
i want someone to hurt
and not me anymore
everything goes wrong
atleast for me
tired of this way
i want to make it better
but lack the way
i have stode up proud once
then knocked right now
what have i done wrong god
tell me i will be better
don't trun your back on me now
i need you the most
but i'm left alone
crying out in the night

lost control

darkness is all i see
i can't find my way out
someone help me
i'm lost
so scared of dying
of being gone

i've gone insane
no one can bring me back
goodbye to all

rising from the ashes
reborn into somthing great
the sins of my past gone now
never to come back
peace is here at last
and its here for me
i love what i have become
even when i'm down
i still feel good inside
peace to all
i hope you reach it
just like i have

something is wrong with me
and i don't know what it is
things don't affect me anymore
i no long shed tears
hard as stone it seems
i know its wrong to feel this way
but i no longer care
to hell with it all
its not me
maybe i will be better this way
at least i don't hurt

don't worry i don't i like me.

But you should, because you have shared in poetry you have shared the most intimate part of you and taken me into a world that is unbekown to me. You have shared your heart and soul and given it to the world to see unconditionally.

Thank you very much.

marchingboots,scuffing ground
to some it is a warning sound
they come to watch,sent to kill
a pox , tax, a bill

there is a soldier to be found
his blood spilt,upon the ground
his is not to reason why,
only to do,or to die

a boom and bang, smoking cloud
only war could be so loud
he gets not a moments grace
the battle etched upon his face

he may jump at any sound
even when enemies,don't surround
his body an instrement finely tuned
tarnished medal for his wound

that is if he can survive the day
eat the dirt and earn his pay
some forever hold thier breath
warriors even after death

what is that dreadful sound
only flowers fall on his mound
or the mothers mourning wail
another story another tale

thanks for everything you to wrote and plaid very good

I have taken the weapon out my hand
Layed it down for good
I want to help
Not to distroy
So what if i sound greedy
I've done my job
I'm thinking of me now
This is my life
And i will run it now
Helping others with what i have learned
Will be my dream

soldier 3

looking out threw the window
i see the world is falling
crashing down around me
what can i do to help
when all i feel is helpless
no longer in army green
am i useless
was being a soldier all i was
with out it am i empty
shame that i miss my wepon
fighting is all i know
and i want it back
don't like being a civilian
the army make me what i am
is that bad

what are you looking for
when you read my words do you fear
maybe you should
being afraid keeps you alive
teaches you to run when you need to
makes you know more of man
watch man carefully
he may just kill you

Devil...A long way from you and that you hold dear....I have just read your thread and have felt your journey.... A long hard one for write from the heart and that is the best place to lay your word on the page...some softness for you....

I can see the meadows
with the wildlflowers bobbing
their heads, as the scent of them
floats on the breeze

My home is there, close by now
I can feel it in my heart
hear the laughter of loved ones
through the screen door

My world quite different now
but if I close my eyes, and sigh
I can feel them all close
and smell the scents of home...

God bless and good luck.....return home safely....L

i was a happy tool
that they used often
a killer and fighter that they made
and now freedom is mine
let out upon man
but holding back who i was
torn from what i want
and who i was
this life no longer makes me happy
good bye good bye
i'll try to live with it

A Soldiers Mom
As the mom of a soldier I wait
I wait for a phone call
I wait for a letter
Or an email that lets me know he is safe
back from a mission
on the streets of war-filled Bagdad
Or a patrol on the outskirts of the city
or any number of nearby cities

As the mom of a soldier I search
I search the net for news
And pictures of what he is doing
What he is going through
I cant imagine
And don’t want to ask him about
I did one day
And someone answered
that I didn’t know
Had never known until now

As the mom of a soldier I grieve
I grieve for every lost piece of
The son that I know
and long to make things better
Like I used to
I grieve for every other mother
Feeling the way I do
helpless in the face of war
As the mom of a soldier I hope
I hope everyday that he
Comes home to me safe and sound
That he can live his life
Full of hope for the future
beautiful girl at his side
I close my eyes and
send all of these things
Ardently in his direction

As the mom of a soldier I dream
I dream about his life
And his birth
And pride swarms up in me
Overflowing in my chest
As I think of him

As the mom of a soldier I pray
I pray for peace
And the everlasting tide of hope
I pray to God
That he will bring my son home
safe and sound to me
Be his shield against his enemies
And a comfort to his aching heart

My son Cole is currently serving in Iraq.
This poem is for him, and his fellow soldiers

Thanks for sharing devil.. you made me cry.....

Garden of stone
Shadows fall on the garden of stone
here and there a lone figure casts flowers
time is stilled for those alone
content in grieving for hours and hours

MAny times a year
or only on occasion
to shed a muffled tear
and be a sad liaison

for the whispered thoughts of the dead
in this hallowed place
step softly with measured tread
peacefully,without haste

respect those, for their sacrifice
all the children taught
they did not think twice
in giving is it all for naught?

histories of an unfinished story
each etched in one small shrine
eased of the burden andthe worry
a monument for all time

the shadows deepen ,not to beg your pardon
in oft forgotten warriors twilight
amidst the stone garden

I wrote this earlier this year and it's on my forum, but thought the people who found their way here might enjoy it.

Dedicated to my brother who already served a tour in Iraq, my father, and every other veteran. For those who never came back. . .

We Go Down

When there’s nobody left
When all is said and done
We go down in this song
We go down in this song

So many miles from home
Fighting here all for one
We go down in this song
We go down in this song

The bombs come down
The bullets fly by
We’re all on this wall
Ready to give our lives

Men will stand
And heroes will fall
We go down in this song
We go down in this song

The lucky ones
Get to come back home
We go down in this song
We go down in this song

Some new friends made
Some old ones gone
Never forget the price we paid
Make sure our memory lives on

Good men, laid to rest
The rest trying to, do our best
We go down in this song
We go down in this song

Tell us you love us all
Show us that you’re proud
As we go down in this song
We go down in this song
No, it won’t be long, now
Before we all go Home
Until then, we’ll go down in this song
We’ll go down . . . in this song

We Remember Them
through many battles so many have fallen
so gallant and brave and never forgotten
poppy fields red with sadness
as we remember soldiers past and present

The Dark In Me

it's dark in my mind
and lonely there
I think i need it
even now i'm in love
but i still need the dark
at least a little
it drives me
it's who i am
why is that

I'm back

The sworn enemies meet on the battle front
victor routs the conquered thru field and stream
weapons sharp and feelings blunt
til the silence of the last scream

One is brought before the heralded
and forced prostrate before him
What is thy name,but no reply
his fate sealed on a whim

bound and lashed his silence unbroken
tortured,despised and ridiculed
still no word is spoken
the victors wrath is fueled

From the killing tree
he will swing
strange he would die so willingly
is this your hero ?your would be king?

on this youv'e pinned your hope
answer ye and answer loud
or his fate done in by knotted rope
still the captive proud

"my father planted this tree"
only words that were offered
"Then it will be the death of thee"
so twas proffered

The haughty vanquisher plucked from the tree
a tender ripened fruit-n -administered a healthy bite
mocking laughter while the other swang free
never the wiser he'd won the war but lost the fight

as he lay dying in the dirt
his throat swelled and tight
the blood spilling upon his shirt
begging for life with all his might

the fearless warrior ,he
before one usurps the throne
done in by the poisoned fruit from the killing tree
make sure all it's secrets known

american proud

What's wrong with being proud
they say it's a sin
but i disagree
when the flag starts to raise
pride fills my heart
i snap to attention
and people laugh
they have lost the respect
for the red, white, and blue
but not i
for when i see that flag
i think of the ones that didn't make it home
they gave everything they had
freedom's that we all have
has been bought by blood
and i am thankfull
thankful of th emen and women
that paid that price
so stand up
and be proud
or get the f**k out

young ones fear

Awake from your dreams
and see whats going on
fear in the eyes of the young
crying out to be heard
and always pushed away from the older
told they don't know pain
don't how the way world works
they have no idea whats its like
but thats wrong
the young can teach us
of how the world is
please open your eyes
and see what they fear
