A SOILDER’S ANGUISH


A SOILDER’S ANGUISH

In a flash a flashback
The transmission of images forgotten
Images that halted time
And tamed a lion

The gory of lost sons
His eyes swells
Like that of a widowed woman
The egos of men

With or without consideration
Those who decided the fate of others
The horror of a haunted night
The cry of departing brothers

Brothers turned enemies overnight
Over the change of interest
The trauma of witnessing a murder
Murder of one’s beloved

War is but a super volcano
That can destroys the unrecoverable

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
