Remember & Reflect

entry picture

Life is a never ending raging battlefield

Freedom is a real live achievable dream

War and conflict are sadly a necessary evil

Liberty equality and fraternity reigns supreme

Lives are selfishly sacrificed for our survival

Lambs to the slaughter is very often the case

As politicians frequently decide our children's fate

Adversity with resilience we must ultimately face

Old soldiers will stand proudly to attention

As the poppies continue to grow for comrades fallen

On this day of remembrance we have the opportunity

To take time out and listen to history calling

For two long meaningful minutes time will stand still

We will bow our heads honour their duty and fall in

The silence is deafening profound and serene

For their ultimate sacrifice we pay tribute and pray

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day

I note you penned this on 9-11 T

A day marked by the deepest sadness by many.

Very poignant, touching and emotive words.

A poem to remember in its own right
