The Drifter

I am a drifter. Place to place To Find a peaceful valley. I want to lay down my sword, Stop fighting for a peace that shall never come. Drift find food and water. Drift keeping ahead of my enemies. Drift looking for a world lush and green, Not blood and battle ridden. I am a lost soul slain in a battle, fighting for my country. I am the spirit of peace and harmony, the spirit who guards the soldiers of today. You may have seen me; you may not ever see me. For if you stay off the fighting grounds we shall never meet. You will live a long and plentiful life, if you never enter the grim aspect of war. You will not drift as I.
