The Lone Soldier - Poem by Bryan Gunn

I walk with no man, I always walk alone

My soul made of fire and my heart of stone

I have no pain, ignoring all that I feel

With bones of iron and nerves of steel

This is what I portray, fooling you all

My emotions so strong, my defenses so tall

But inside I'm weak, having unsettled war

Not knowing why I battle or what this is for

This war is unending and cease fires are few

No shots are heard but damage is true

What is going on here, what is this for

I'm a lone soldier in a private war

    From one Gunn to another, I'd like to commend you on an excellent job. I can easily relate to its theme. Do you have any more you would want to post? I am giving you a strong 8 on this particular piece; and I do mean a strong 8 as I rarely hand out 10's.
