The Blind Side - Poem by Alfred Ramos

To what courage do we fall
Lest we not hear our commander’s call

Fool nor folly, we must not judge
To our mortal enemy we hold a grudge

Though doubt clouds our mind
No order shall we decline

Reason gathers dust
Since the day we sold our trust

For God and country we march on
As battle cries invade the dawn

Doves stop singing as bullets cry
No shield upon us, only rusted sky

For honor we must die
And high our flag must fly

Do we wear our silent courage
Where devils claim to forage

Pushing forward through bloody path
Over obstacles of stained wrath

To what courage do we call
Right or wrong, like dominoes we fall

Heroes left and right to cannons burst stall
One hill closer to victory for all

So is courage a bad thing left to hide
Move bravely forward not seeing the blind side

    Alfred Ramos described the desolation of a battlefield, and the drive of a soldier very well in this poem. But I must say... the fact that he mentions, Right or wrong, like dominoes we fall shows one thing that most people back home do not understand, the price. (Report) Reply
