Many People gather
Without knowledge why to stay
They stand there disapointed
But no one leaves that day.
One strong willed man
Speakes out to the rest
We gather here and ask of you
For your patience and your best
He goes on as the others listen
He stops and wipes his face
He then asks for their forgiveness
And then their lives that day.
He asks if they will fight and die for him
Their families will be so proud
As he will live on inspite of them
One Man screams out loud:
"I will fight for my country,
I will give you my blood and pride.
I stood there right next to you,
Until I got shot in the side."
He died for his country
He layed down his body and soul
No matter how hard I cried for him,
He finally completed his goal.

A fitting tribute to all the fallen heroes.
Great job
