Hero. Patriot. Honour.

Just some of the thing that come to mind.

Shells. Screams. Death.

Those things that they don't tell.

The gas. The pain. The fear.

The shells. The guns. The noise. The tears.

Fighting. For your life. Not country.

Commands. No choice. Not bravery.

The loss. The loneliness. The emptiness.

The guilt. The pain. The struggles. The depression.

Shells. Screams. Death.

Those things that they don't tell.

War.

What shouldn't come to mind.

Hero. Patriot. Honour.
