Soldiers - Poem by Chukwukere Timothy

All hail our soldiers
That never carried arms on their shoulders.
It breaks me, they're never older.
Since they cross the borders.
Soldier! You can't even stand attention?
There's war here. You can't feel the tension?
Go soldiers. Come here! Go there!
Can you hear?
Soldier of last year,
Wail! They're not near.
You're a soldier!

Soldiers! ! I see you in the air.
I know you hear.
You're here.
You're near.
Its being a year
You left here.
We still battling the devil.
While you rest in heaven.
Soldier! Even if in heaven you can hear me.
I know someday we'll be.
But you don't know how I feel when they defeat you.
I'm sorry I can't reach you.
I salute you soldier.
In my memories, you're one year older.
My soldier, my friend my brother.
I'm still a standing soldier.
