To The End...

In honor of Remembrance Day, I am reposting my original poem, To The End, from 2011...

Was it in your eyes when you were born;

Or did it develop through the years;

That steely glint of the strength within

Honed sharp as a razor on whetted stone?



Ramrod spine and head held high,

To battle do you march;

Once an infant sweet and soft,

Now a soldier trained to fight.



To land, air, and sea you're beckoned;

Through sun and rain,

Blood and tears;

The future counted in seconds.



Brave man,

Brave woman,

Brave family left home;

For liberty you stand.



Today we remember;

Red poppies and white crosses;

Victory and losses;

Your courage and honor to the end.


11.11.13

Remember.


Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~George Santayana
