Honorable death

when it comes night time, i sit with my rifle at my side and wonder how many lives i have affected with one bullet at a time.. i wonder why we where ever put on the earth, but only to breathe another breath as another one is taken away...... i dread for the morning air to come... to see the faces of those who will become the past but all i can do is life for the misery it truly has given all i can do is think of the quote " if i live... i will kill you ... if i die you are forgiven

Geez, where did that quote come from at the end, Jacob? Very thought-provoking. I think I would consider your verse style to be "Narrative" as your poems tell gripping stories. Well done! Best wishes, Carolyn
