Lines drawn into the sand
A war wages on
Blood splatters across the land
At the crack of dawn

Dark skies and blank eyes
Wounded, lost, broken
All the forsaken, here lies
As no words are spoken

Engraved into history
The ones that left their mark
What remains a mystery
Is how they kept their spark

As death will arrive
Taking those now gone
The ones who are still alive
Will continue to march on
