A Soldiers Story


We start out to climb life's mountains
With no fear we march boldly on
We fight and fight and fight again
Until all our fight is gone

Our arms as hard as iron
Our wills as strong as stone
But we are tricked and decieved by this enemy
Until we find ourselfs alone

Our hearts once filled with spirit
Our souls once prepared to last
But we are beaten down, into the ground
Until our souls are dying fast

We once walked proudly into battle
We stood tall, so all could see
But through it all, they watched us fall
At the feet of this enemy

But this war it's not yet over
Even though were tired and weak
We must battle on until all is gone
And our ears hear Jesus speak

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
