I love to write poems and this time I wrote a poem dedicated to the many soldiers that went off to fight a war.


Soldier Boy


 

A Soldier boy walks to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

Turned to his mother and smiled

He turned backed around and promised it’ll only be a while

Until he’d come home

So the brave soldier boy set out alone

To protect what he loved the most

His Home

 

A Soldier boy stares out to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

Now in sight of the battlefield

His hands on the weapon that he’d wield

He starts ache for his mother’s touch and to turn around

But he promised himself to stand his ground

He had to stay until the outcome

To know who would have won

 

A Soldier boy marches to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

A brave soldier boy stayed to fight a war

Just like his fathers before

He’d never return home

For what was precious, he gave up everything he owned

For the face of war is unreal

The scars made would never heal

 

 

A Soldier boy marched to war

As his fathers before

Knowing that this day would come

When he would no longer have to run

The day he’s wouldn’t be known as a boy, but as a man

So he promise to always stand

And never fall into the dept of doubt

No matter the how hard, once he’s in there’s no way out

 

A brave soldier boy marched away from home

Only to die alone

But his mark has forever stained the ground

On that of the battle field

His soul freely roams, no longer bound

Fore as he promised, he never fell or kneeled

A brave soldier boy who was a boy when this all began

Lived and died as a brave, brave man

I like your poem. I just posted one called a Soldiers Tears, so when I saw yours I decided to read. It was a very moving piece. I work on a military installation and see what soldiers and their families endure everyday, it is nice to see a beautiful attributed to them.

Yes! While I was reading I was humming something to it, so they could totally work as lyrics. I really like the repetition and how you slightly altered each stanza. And wow, the ending was sad. It was like a story --you don't want the main character to die. But it works. ;____; Very good. I myself can't write poetry, so sorry that I can't offer much advice, but it really is great ;)

Yeah that'd be cool, I'll have to check out SilverShadow's story. lol, don't worry, we just love our sibs haha. I try to get my brother to write something, but he thinks he's going to suck. But then I have to remind him that we're twins so there's a chance he could love stories and poetry as much as me. But he's still ify about it hehe. Awe well, he'll take his time I guess.
I would love to see what you think of my work!:).

That was so moving. Your words, the use of repetition and the rhythm you created all made this flow smoothly and blew me away with its simple beauty. Great work :)

A very well put together poem. So lyrical and with the repetition it could pass for a song. Touching and full of emotion and all those other great things I love so much. Nice job. Susan :)

Go for it! You never know; it took about three teachers and a lot of assignments and strange helping tips to make me good... some what. (^_^)

Truly a heartfelt story. I've lived in a war except on the other side of the gun, so I can definitely relate.

Nicely done.
