Dustin Bennefield

Rookie (Semptember 11,1991 / GA)

Through Soldiers' Eyes

So tense am I
The falling sky
Holding my breath
Until the Death

It’s my life
So turn the scythe
Break the bread
And stop the Lead

Loud is it
The latest cry
But all the time
Red is the Dye

A placid face
Of Death’s clean lace
The slow coming of
A century’s Race

    I like your imagery. This is the kind of poem I really like...it's easy to read, but the language isn't boring. (Report) Reply

    A sad poem of our time Dustin. I guess you must have personal experience to express so well? Thanks for reminding us, we need it. Tai (Report) Reply
