Honed blades slice deep
and raging rivers run red.
Depth of perception is reality.
Life flashes before these eyes.

I sheathe my sword in glory
fearing what shall be.
Weariness tortures this soul
as was with all those long ago.

Death is not a stranger.
It toils beyond existence,
counting each amplified step
as I stumble upon its' haunt.

This warrior cannot cheat the reaper
nor challenge to bitter confrontation.
Defiance is his sustanance
and he will feast on my essence.

Generals shall tabulate victories
and battles that were won.
I will shed my accoutrements
and count blessings.

A strong voice in these verses. I love the effect of the first verse and the message in the last verse! Only those who have known war can truly know the full meaning of these feelings. I can only read and appreciate them. Thank you for sharing these thoughts. Hugs:)

This write makes a profound impact, Paul, and that last stanza could be written in stone - or, perhaps, blood is sadly more appropriate. Stunning. Thank you. Kate

This is an awesome tale in your
unique style.
Death never lets us cheat forever
and this one is excellent in the reminder
of the blessings we should count each and

Missed you Friend....
