Faded Picture in a Old Frame

Old faded Picture of a handsome young man
in soldiers uniform from the first world war
who gave his life for his country
once so loved and cherished
means nothing to anyone any more.

A face without a name
bought for 50 pence
on a second hand stall
not for the picture that's thrown away
but for the frame.

    [sigh] I wonder over & over if those who choice to serve would do so generation after generation if they truly realized this? But, so many sign up for economic reasons & that's very understandable. Shelter, food, healthcare & education are very hard to come by with no money & no hope of a job. Light & Love

    Hi Debbie get your point. so many die to fight other peoples wars, to the powers that be, they are just pawns in a dangerous game. We never seem to learn. I guess what you say is true imagine being 15, 16 or 17 in the great war. what life experiencing, have they had how young an nieve. My poem reflects not only soldiers but anyone, who has lived and then forgotten from loving memory thank you. Pete.

    So sad this is Pete, that a frame could be worth more than the photo it contains, True words here, my friend and so well written....peter

    So sad that when one buys a treasure like this for the frame but not giving a second thought to the person in the photo and their life. Made me sad because it's truly how people are at times isn't it hon'.
