The Toughest Choice
The sun shines a bloody red
The realization of, have been misled
Flooding emotions of villainy and betrayal
It began with best intentions, ships sail
Hundreds of decaying corpses dumped in the ridge
Weeks; maggots and worms wiggle in rotting flesh
Once great men, now how worthless did Man look burnt into ash?
Under hundreds of corpses, warms, and maggots; no one hears the call
The countless wiggling of moist bodies of the worms, grows maddening
Images of all these men who made widows, is saddening
A king of Man, erases all memory of these noble men, forgotten carnage
Men who fought for their home, family, and country; for dirt.
Men who are thrown away as though they were garbage; in the place of their birth.
The image playing a million times as he felt the knife
Buried in a mass grave with his brothers-in-arms, he lays
Worthless? Or the bravest? Defending his home, his land, the earth, making it rich as his body decays as it dies.
The army of men have each a soul, energy, which makes it beautiful over all.
Behind what we are able to see, he has returned to the celestial stream.
