Biography of Jon M. Nelson

Jon M. Nelson was born and raised in Minnesota for the majority of his life until he joined the Army at 20 years old. Since then he has called many places home and has traveled the world on several occasions, and is still proudly serving today. In his spare time, when he's not busy as a soldier, he shares his deepest and personal thoughts in the form of poetry. He has written many poems to honor his brothers and sisters in arms, but he has written so much more than that. Whether it's a love poem for his wife, a spiritual salute to God, a praise to children and family, or even an inspiring tale to uplift humanity, Jon's poetry touches on so many subjects that can be read and shared by so many audiences, even if they've never been a fan of poetry. Jon hopes that his writing will in some way make an impact on the world, and make it a better place, even if it can just change or inspire one person.

A Soldier's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
And hope my dreams are thoughtful and deep.
I pray that tonight I’m not awaken,
By bombs exploding and the ground shakin’.

I hope that I can get some peaceful rest,
And wish that the next day will be blessed.
All I want is to sleep through the night,
So that tomorrow I’m ready for another fight.
