For more than a century this frame
Captures the innocence of my youth
And though I no longer have a name
Time cannot take away the truth
I've fought so many battles in this bloody war
I can't recall what it is that I am fighting for

This rifle is an extension of my being
The dark side of my soul I never knew
And it does me good not ever seeing
The atrocities that I do
Now I pose for this picture at the close of this war
Brother against his brother not so innocent anymore

I was guessing it would be good just by the title (which is really not a fair assumption to make) but i was right!!! WOW!!! this really hit hard

LOL Very nice piece, and yes, very powerful as everyone else said! I've been telling everyone how innocent I am, and well, you know, I thought ..........never mind !!
