I can't remember where I summoned this idea... but it's nearly eleven at night, and all of a sudden I had to get on here and write this.
So basically, the title says it all. Dedication to this Unmarked grave.

~~Dedication to this Unmarked Grave~

?

By Courtney

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I stand frozen, eyes falling upon thousands of white crosses.

Unmarked.

Who are you?

I sit down infront of one, no different from the rest.

Who are you?

Who, were you?

I suppose, we had so much in common.

We both loved.

We both cried.

We both got scared.

But, there are differences too.

You were so brave.

You faced what scared you the most,

with pride.

You are not alive.

You are not breathing.

Can you hear me?

Can you think?

Are you upset, that this unmarked grave does not give you the recongnition,

you deserve?

And, God, how hard it must be,

to see your family, your friends,

walking in this field endlessly,

checking, every single cross.

Praying for your name to be on it.

You scream out,

"Im here! Im right here!"

But they can't hear you.

you can't tell them,

you love them.

Thousands of tortured restless souls,

in unmarked graves,

not able to call out,

to let me know,

who they are.

Who they were.

And I have never been so afriad,

so terrified.

For them.

For me.

Because nobody wants to end up,

forgotten,

in an unmarked grave.
