SOLDIER

Ignore earthly desires for nation's sake Freedom of countrymen keeps him awake Despite mother's care he cares mother country Orphans they're when leaving military Rain, snow, thorn are his bed Parents gave birth for bloodshed People share employment by religion and caste Nation neglect them as waste Election fetches members life long pension But dedicated soldier earns life tension Tombs are made for back-up barrens Scattered corpse of soldiers in battle unknown Are they not sons of their nation? For poets it may be an imagination If military is compulsory for every man There may be feeling of fellowmen If so called Gods reside in country’s border Devotees would guard nation without fear.
