This woke me up in the middle of the night. God bless our men and women in uniform...
Frozen in place, keyed to march,
To defend when ordered. Think
In that uniform of starch
Fashioned, there could be a chink
-----like feelings? A heart, perhaps??
Weary of the game of war,
Of hearing the haunted 'Taps'
Bugled one more time. Before
It tolls for him, he stuffs fear
Within his breast, soldiers on-----
Strong. Tough. There's no room for tears
Or mourning. And, come the dawn,
He marches towards his death,
Giving his all: His last breath.
(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (1/16)

|So is the life of the soldier. Most of the soldiers I have known have admitted that they don't wish to die for what they believe but that they have little problem putting themselves in the position that it could happen. They are noble and far stronger than I could ever hope to be. I am humbled by their sacrifices and awed by their commitment. Powerful Poem!
