US Marine Sniper

Specter of a Hero's Tortured 
Soul
Forfeiting faith to successors to 
sacrifice self for others...he 
believes not in himself but his 
progeny...
Eternal life and inflexible 
determination prevent waning 
love...his ceaseless adoration 
powerful to the point of self 
harm...
Unwillingness to ever relinquish 
the shards of his heart...or the 
memory of possible fates...
Soul scarred with unfathomable 
secrets and wounds...alone and 
concealed he is known to not 
even himself...
Heart struggling to conquer 
inner demons and loss...mind 
overworked to find salvation 
from hell's burning wrath...
Indescribable like smoke blown 
through trees on a moonless 
night...
Intricately woven to be as 
substantial as the steam which 
fuels his passion...
Never surrendering...never 
retreating...never giving in to 
any opposition...
Steadfast and valiant he will 
never be 
conquered...unreadable and 
undecipherable...he will never 
be understood...
