Heroes of War

Boys grown to men 
Bullets dogged to defend 
Born with a strength 
Their lives are of an unknown length 
Left with a rage 
With each and every letter they turn a page 
Of another day of blood, sweat and tears
Which they will try to forget over the years
Hoping to be heroes of war 
They wish to be so much more 
To earn the praise of their fathers
The respect of others 
Prisoners of America ego
Fighting feuds of long ago
A cult of government reign
For each and every death it is our lord that feels the pain 
So many young souls that will be forsaken  
And moments of time that will taken 
Their is only one choice 
To be answered with a hero's voice
A clear roll of the dice 
An ultimate sacrifice 
Of ones own life

*  you will be missed
