Unseen Soldier - Poem by Courtney L. Vaughan

I'm running to the moon
Through the trees we wisk away
We're different from the others

Running through the night

We're watch from affare
The unseen protectors
Meeting up with them after all the lights go out.

We're watched

These protectors have a purpose.
Not your everyday, save the world, superhero
no, not them
They're young and rugged
Jocksters 'til a fight.

We fight

We protect those with unseeing eyes
The people of this world are blinde
We fight the unknown war
The war for their safty
A war that may decide whether they live or die.
But they do not see
They run minningless lives
Constantly toiling over the same pointless things
Unaware of the things that go bump in the night
The things they need protecting of
The things the pass of as tricks of the light
They are the viscous oil of the grandfather clock of their own dieing society

Yet we fight
We fight for them
We fight for ourselves

The unseen soldier
