Melody of a forgotten generation

We are a Melody,
We are what no one can see.
We sing together in perfect harmony,
We rise and fall,
Our souls are big but sometimes small.
The evils haven't caught us all.
Not many of us are left,
Over the ones who perished we have wept.
But we knew the cards we were dealt,
We won't stumble when we look into the eyes of death.
Hand and hand,
We will always sing to the hearts of man.
Untill the very last of our days.

We each made a commitment,
The fears we have makes us stand no different.
To all we may seen forgotten,
Some of us are still remembering the ones who have fought with them,
Remembering when they caught them.
And killed them while they were still singing,
They died for us....so we could continue our purpose among the living.
Along the shadows of the buildings,
Along the Street,
That's where we will be.
We are a melody,
We are ones you can not see.

    An inspiration is never silent, yet the source may be ignored...there is something heroic, tragic, and faithful in this poem that I like very much Ettie. True heros don't bleed for attention...J.A.B.

    This is a thought provoking, heartfelt piece of work. What baseball team do you root for? I am a Mets fan. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
