The Sacrifice
                                   The Sacrifice
To All Warriors
The sun casts a blood red hue upon these lands
As I look down on my scarred and calloused hands.
Ugly instruments of war and violence they have become,
Forging death as the bullets sing and hum.
We came here for peace, we came here to help,
But what we received was not what we hoped to be dealt.
I sit here miles and miles from home,
Away from all those to whom I speak on the phone.
My parents and fiance all worry about me,
While I look up over the mountains and offer up a plea.
"If I am to be caught in the middle of a fight,
"Please God, can I get my men out of that plight?"
Those in my squad think similar thoughts,
For we are the ones who have always fought.
We are the combatants, those damned souls,
It is us for whom the bell tolls.
Every night I w

The Fallen
                                                           The Fallen
“The war ended on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.”  So is the popular saying surrounding the end of the First World War, which ended 90 years ago today as of eleven am.  That day is known in Europe as Armistice Day.  In the United States, we know it as Veteran’s Day.  The day is to recognize and remember all those who served in America’s wars, including the ones who have fallen.  The ones who return may be called heroes by their towns, their friends, and their families.  But they are the ones who know the truth.&

The Soldier's Tale
                                             The Soldier’s Tale
The streets were a golden brown, the sky was dark,
Slowly the Soldier walks
His rifle loaded, safety off, eyes a-wary
His duty is to fight, but fight for what?
Is it for glory, for honor, for land?
Will he fight for his country, himself, or fight for the freedom of others?
Only the soldier shall know.
Up ahead, the bullets begin to fly, and the soldier dives.
The adrenaline rushes into his system, heightening every sensation.
He can see the dust falling, feel the ptang of bullets on brick,
The Soldier can hear the buzzing of the gun, and the yelling all around.
He rises from cover and aims-one, two!  One, two!
He drops back down, uncertain of what he hit.
Now his blood is up-they are sho

Interests
Well, school is nearing, and guess what I found?  My DA account.  Weird, isn't it?  I have really neglected this poor little son-of-a-gun.  I fear that I will neglect it even further, because I have one hell of a year coming up.  AP US, AP Psych, AP English, XC, track, enlistment...I sincerely hope that I will be able to upload more stuff, but I don't know how much I still can.  For all I know, I might be dead within a year.
All the same, though, expect a lot more out of me this school year.  I'm even thinking about creating a short story series concerning our armed forces, just to explore what I know, and how well I can make that knowledge into a good story.
