Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hey im Kirsy. I owuld love you to check this out and give me feedback. This is my first ever poem i have written!

I was getting a bit emotional around remeberence day and thinking of all those poor men who were dragged into a war they had no cluewhy they were fighting it. This poem is taken from two soliders who only had one difference. Fighting for the other side.
