The dirt and blood

All around

As the war raged on

No hope to be found


Snipers firing brutally

Bombers in the sky

I worried for my family

My sanity and my life


Smells of blood and dirt

Filled the stiff air

My mates and fellow trooper’s dead

Misery and despair


But I knew the world would still go on

even if I didn’t make it through

my song would fill their hearts


so hear my cries

from the battle field

dead bodies that all lie

around me and the noise


I don’t want the last thing I hear

Screams of agony

So hear me out

Please put me out of my misery


Stop the war

And future ones to come

Conflict and all evil

But that deed can’t be done
