Soldiers of the Wall

By: iliveinadreamworld

Thousands of names carved in granite

Who are they I ask?

And why is this here?

They are the soldiers that we lost

They served in a war that the people want to forget

They lost their lives fighting for us

They are the soldiers of the wall

I can't say that I know any of them

But I can say that I wish I did

For I'd like to have seen these brave soldiers

They are the soldiers that we lost

They served in a war that the people want to forget

They lost their lives fighting for us

They are the soldiers of the wall

I saw the pictures of the people

Friends and family who had lost

And I wish I could've comforted them

And said thank you for the sacrifices that were made

They are the soldiers that we lost

They served in a war that the people want to forget

They lost their lives fighting for us

They are the soldiers of the wall

The soldiers of the wall….


Hi everyone! Sorry that the spacing is a little messed up. I wrote this for my History class today, and thought I might as well post it. It's about the Vietnam War.
