Like An Old Soldier - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

I called her and she was crying all over again;
But, life is n ot always easy at times.
Life!
Like an old soldier in the field of war;
But i have to teach her the ways of my experiences.
Muse!
I am like an old soldier walking along alone after the war;
And, after learning the lessons of what war brings.
