The Soldier Who Saw What No Man Should See - Poem by Andrew Matthews
The soldier who saw
what no man should see
Is haunted by a terrible past
Memory's scarred by blood
and destruction and flying shrapnel
overhead in a blast.
He leaves behind his happiness
as he steps upon the plane
His fears and his nightmares
flashing fast, in and around his brain.
He wonders if he'll ever return
to see his family
To hold his children again.
His brain is full of worry and
his hope is beginning to drain.
