Remembered - Poem by Randy McClave

I do not want to be remembered
As the man who gave up and surrendered,
I would rather be recognized instead
As the courageous man buried with the noble dead.
Never dastardly will I carry a white flag
If I did my soul would desert and my body would gag,
I will fight! I swear until I am that last man
Then another patriot can continue what I began.
Never will I be called or thought of as a coward
In pride and honor I have bathed and showered,
Today! I will be remembered as a writer;
But, tomorrow I will be recalled as a soldier and a fighter.
