Kody Latham



the screams of the dying
and their crying
are driving me insane
they just seem to never leave my brain
all i can remeber is the the pounding rain
of the artillery setting off explosions
and throwing up dirt in a quick attempt at erosion
but i have learned that it was never the bullets
that were my greatest enemy
but the memories
and the scars they have left on my soul
i seem to always feel like any empty bowl
begging for water but i am denied
for i have already had my time
with my innocence
so i am left to reminiscence
on the past and all i can do is ask
how much longer could all of this last?

    This is a very intence write, if I understood this, I would say it is your recoletion as to what it is to live through a battle zone and have to now live with the aftermath that very sadly leaves many men/women plauged with this.. You were quite vivid with the description of war time and all that unfolds with it... Very Very good..
