I was feeling rather militant when I wrote this poem, since I'm way too cowardly to actually go hit something instead.

Front row i stand, perilous station 
Many receding posts to a safer location. 
I fear much, cold exposed trepidation. 
But glory is found here - a lifetime's elation. 

When the gods of fortune smile upon us, 
we must sieze what lays before us 
or before our eyes, our fate lets slide 
like sand in our hands we reside. 

A thousand drumbeat heart into 
a harmonious cacophony of dreams 
A siren in its melody flows through 
into wild, unrelenting beats it seems. 

If we seize not the souls translation, 
we are doomed to hollow echoes 
into the recesses of mind's nation 
found wanting but destined to lose. 

Take up arms, to war i cry 
For shall we fail, 
tormented in soul's solitude - 
we shall die. 

Pro-poemer, not really
