Dear Beautiful Mariam
I hope you were not caught up on the way
at the cross road where love lines crossed path.
If tomorrow comes and you see me no more,
bear in mind that I have gone with the nation's
Flag to show our ancestors of once a land fought
For, but she has been ruined once again by all.
I am a soldier and you know that I am for my
Country, and, my country is me in death and life.
If there are things written and those not written;
I want you to know with all your heart that the man
In me cares.
