Over mature reflex,

To honor the man
That my father never knew
Having died in World War Two

watching you

the permanent ring in the

Near Saint Avold, France,
More than ten thousand heroes
Whisper from the soil.

in his warmth

 

its the way you love me

Marching on a Hot Day

Marching along in triple digits
you don't have to think of the heat
It's enought to worry lagging behind
without worry of the "smell of defeet"

Cry of A Successful Man

With love comes consequence
With hope comes failure
With triumph comes fear
With peace comes worry
With riches comes pain
With poverty comes envy

Flight

Dark skies...

      Burning souls...

                Acid rain...

                     Raging storms...

but still...

     I'm off to save the world.

OLD SOLDIERS

OLD   SOLDIERS



The dead have vast monuments begotten in stone
The living  have last moments forgotten, alone


The sound of marching fades in ceremonies
Replaced by new young legs for new cemeteries

Short Soldier poem by Anusha Dharmasena| Details | |

Be all that you can be

Sun and sand and beach
Life has some lessons for me
Be all  you can be!

Sad conversations
May healing come to you soon
And children be safe!

For all you have done
And wherever you may be
May you rest in peace!
