More battles and shots that rang

5th time the sun rose again


Sweet smell of salted seashores 


Grit between my shoed toes


Gunshots still rang, yet the worst was over.


Keeping cover from what I've always known.


Dancing to a melody of my dearest war's diaries


Never letting anyone down.


Never giving up.


To run on the earth and my soles to dig in


To the memories of why I am even alive.


And feel the fire of the shell's arm's reaching


Scraping my words until their harsh exterior washed


Yet somehow my options were on my tags


And my faith was with the wind


Moving where I am needed, and for nothing more


Alone


Silent


Two things that bring bearance


Like the lost cause of your shrapnel


It only exists to tear.


Tear the last bit of flesh I offer.


You will beat it, and wear it. Over my dead body.


And I will never give up.


Or let you lose me.


Because times like these offer few reasons


As to why a world should grow so cold.


 


 


I deserve that 5th sunrise


While I wipe the sweat off my brow


And exhale to the hope of a 6th


And for a home on the 7th


And a path written for the 8th.


So you can walk it, and I can cover you.


Forever.
