Soldier

With strong feet i step into the battlefield A gun in my hand behind gods shield Leaving the dearest to my heart behind I see the flowers at the side of the mourning streets A part burned a part of them weeps Sounds of thunder fall down from the sky But i keep on moving with my eyes wide open trying to keep my head up high At some point i remember the smell of peace At home in my garden where birds used to sing I'll face death just to be born again I will kill death with my own bare hands if i can And if death might lay me down for an endless sleep I'll wake up in my garden right at the centre of my dreams And death in both ways i will defeat

No i am not, but i was inspired by the stories of our martyrs fighting for our land to keep us safe. I imagined myself there , what they think. It's in honor of them . Our heroes. Thank you tim
