The Fallen of Gethsemane

The blood spilled on the often fluid ground
and marked the place where young men ceased to be.
Until a time when birdsong fills the air
and crimson flags demand “Look, this is me”.
I am the souls of young men everywhere
anointed by the tears of loves and family.
Avail this place with all due reverence
and don’t forget the dead beyond Gethsemane.

    I really like this poem. You have managed beautifully to capture the reader in your theme which I feared at the beginning might be too....sad or brutal but instead you engaged me and kept me through the entire and I came away in a state of reverence and stand with respect before a poem I confess to have questioned...that is gift to reader: The surprise and ownership the poem commands
