Before our country falls
From cowardice within,

And when the bugle calls
Out taps…it sounds our sin.

A soldier breathing his last breath

A scarred wife left behind

Blessed are sailors,
Who dare cross the seas.
Finding treasured beauty,

Trouble lies ahead.
Shoot easily my fighter,

My father is a Soldier

My father is a hero.
He stands so tall and proud.
His hands are firm, But gentle.
He stands out in a crowd.
People stop to Thank him.
For Freedom he does fight.
My father is a Soldier.
But he's my Dad at night!

The Toe Tag Generation

Its the ninth day of April
and the sixth soldier dies.
We're the toe tag generation,
dropping like house flies.
Six in nine days
yet we're all heading home.
Bonds stronger than life,
we'll never again be alone.

Short Soldier poem by Gianni Sesa-Ashton| Details |


Imperfection is beauty, flaws are art,
Purity is overrated, failing is understated,
Strange is innovative,
Battle scars make a soldier,
Perfect makes the heart colder,
Make mistakes, miss a shot,
Dare to fall, dare to try.
