A Soldiers Veiw

Upon the battlefield
Shooting the enemy
Knowing
I may not come home.

Nothing can change
How
I feel
Or
What
I am doing.

Although
I yearn to sleep
In my own bed
My pride
Keeps me here.

My duty
Is to perform
This task
Here
On the now bloodied
Combat field

Most say
It’s unnecessary
My only response being
Freedom isn’t free
My fallen comrades
The very proof I offer.

And though
I may fall with them
It’s a small price to pay
If it means
My kids will be
Safe.

People want peace
But, most
Don’t understand
The meaning.



You think it
Unnecessary
I think of
The twin towers.

When you scorn
George Bush,
I say
We gave you the right.

You say
We don’t need the manpower
I think of
The many men
In need of training.

A soldier
Holds
A different view
But,
It is also
The soldiers
That defend the right
To uphold
That view.

The one thing
That matters to people
Is that they’re safe.

And
When they complain

Most forget
What they have.

Soldiers always
Remember the cost
Yet,
It is the soldiers
Who have
An uncertain future.





Life isn’t
Always fair
And the soldiers
Live it every day.

They would indeed
Do it again
Given the chance
If that is what
Is needed.

People say we don’t
Need this war
Soldiers say
There are some things
Worth fighting for.

And rather then
Criticize
I thank those
Willing
To Pay the price
For people they don’t
Know
For land they don’t
own
For doing
What needs to be done.

This has been written
To honor

Those
Who didn’t make it home
Those
Who are already here
And
Those
Who
Are still there


Thank You.

  314.     

A SACRIFICE ABANDONED

He stood like a stone
Before the statue of his son
Who sacrificed to protect the bound
That was hailed as supreme
By the supreme commander
Who with the band of soldiers
Gave his son a ceremonious exit
From this world as the corpse
Of the corps life lost body
Laid on the pyre with flower bed
And the shot sparked
From the guns of the soldiers
Encircling the decorated pyre
Where a sea of men and women
Thronged as if before the holy
Sanctum sanctorum of a God!
The mob chanted and praised
And elated him to a semi-God
The colorful tearful festivities
Dispersed as pyre started to swallow
His decaying foul body!

It was a decade before
His son died leaving his bride
Just wed a couple of days before!
The crackling fall of fate's
Unkindest cut of all the dreams
Of his spouse and the family
Reached the village in shock.
But the shell-shocked father
Had a wishful thinking
Had I but died an hour
Before this chance but for his son
The nuptial knot would have
Been safe and create the new generation
A dream a father nurture always!
As days passed the soldiers bride
Packed all with billions to her village
Where she was dressed up
To the take another 'sapthapathi'
With her new found spouse!
The frail old father
Put a statue with all his reserves
At the place where the soldier
Turned ashes and mere memory

The foot of the statue
Bore petals of flowers
That the soldier's father
With out fail put every year
On the day of his sacrifice
But the village and family
Forgot that brave son
Who slept not but for the country -men
Who slept in dreams!
There he stand looking
To the face of the time
Asking a question
Why the village in thankless
Leaving him abandoned
Ignored and forgotten!
The soldier is left alone
With none to glance a moment!

  315.     

Suicide in the Trenches

I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.

God and the Soldier

God and the soldier
All men adore
In time of trouble,
And no more;
For when war is over
And all things righted,
God is neglected -
The old soldier slighted.
