Ashes Through The Dawn

Bullets forever fly, it'll never stop.
Angels and demons die, while mortals continue to drop.
Fight for the empires, you willingly die for.
All are liars, yet the insnare more.
A shot to the head, the strike of a tongue.
They're all dead, though so young.
Raping democracy, perverting the truth.
Can no one see, they're killing the youth.
Your life ends, by a look through the scope.
No life or friends, not a shred of hope.
Dead men tell no tales, yet I can hear.
The heart beat fails, causing the stain of another tear.
You believed them, do you feel betrayed?
Dying for the system, the tricks been played.
No such thing as free speech, for no one can speak.
All you have to do is reach, yet you're too weak.
Take your remorse, once you are dead.
For the country of course!, help the message spread.
Bow before your king, as the unknowing fool.
You're taking everything, for you're just a tool.
Take in the abuse, take your last breath.
You've served your use, now walk into death.
Darkened days, and even darker nights.
Choose your many ways, to accept heavenly light.
Watch the spreading smile, of your loving nation.
Just take in the denial, and serve your station.
Ashes through the dawn, will slowly break you.
Your breath is gone, what now is there to do?
Horror steadily grows, as shadows fall.
No one knows, no one can hear the agonized call.
As hearts grow still, do you accept defeat?
Do you have the will, to get out of your seat?
Will you still kill, as bullets rip through flesh and meat?

Very very strong powerful write about such a sad destiny a soldier may subject themselves to. War is an ugly thing for all. I can feel your frustration and anger toward our leaders! Well done! Laura :)
