That's Death

There are bodies laying on the floor
Blood seeping from the room
Covering their wounds
But that’s death

A sound of consequence
Echoing through existence
Finding a deaf ear
But that’s death

People walk away to their lives
Leaving those behind
Forgetting us
But that’s death

We walk the crowded streets
Looking for our salvation
Never getting redemption
But that’s death

Paid In Full

There are wars that are to be won
And there are wars to be lost
There are lives to be saved
And there are lives to be lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are victories that are deserved
And even in those wins, something is lost
There are deaths that are deemed necessary
Despite that, their honor is never lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are people that do not agree
And believe that the world is lost
There are others that say it’s saved
Only if the doubt and negativity are lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are soldiers that believe in a cause
And believe that American values are not lost

The Last Ride

The warning order was read aloud
With soldiers listening intently
Though the information never changed

The insurgent strikes where increasing
So be alert and on guard for the unexpected
And remember to watch your buddies back

The convoy was out the gate by 0600
Lining the roads with olive drab green
Covered in blinding white sand

Miles were traveled through the endless desert
Passing through one ghost town after another
Glimpses of nameless faces covered by black robes

The mangled highway signs alert drivers
Be aware of merging traffic in Baghdad
While orange and white taxis flood the road

Life In A Small Town

No one would have guessed
Things would end up this way
Living in a small town
Everyone should have known

But to the town’s surprise
They never suspected this
There was no warning to be had
And no warning to be taken

But now there will be stories
Told in the halls of school
And in the pews of church
About a girl gone wrong

She lived a modest life
Attending all the social events
Including the pasture parties
But never being invited to one
