A soldier walks

Across the land

A rifle in hand

Standing proud and tall

Thinking of only victory.

The soldiers get in the trenches

And see the enemy

Shots are fired and shouts are heard

You cannot hear the singing bird

The soldier fires, then again

A bullet hitting a man

And he will fall

No longer standing

Proud and tall.

The soldier has won a victory

Or has he?

He has killed a man

Who he didn’t know

This will haunt him

For his life

Cutting into his thoughts

Sharp as a knife.
