Hey my fellow bloggers…as most of you know that I am in college
(because duh, knowledge is success and you all wanna be successful don’t you ?!? )
and that I am good at writing
(if you don’t think using auto correct and thesaurus
is a crime punishable by literature, that is ) .
Here I present to you my entry which got ‘Appreciable Efforts’
in a contest organized by
in association with my college fest ‘Meraki 2k16’ .
The name of the contest was Octopus With A Quill
( clever, ain’t it ) .
I am sorry I wasn’t able to Re-blog it and could only provide you with the link.
I hope you will click it.
LIVE AND LET LIVE !
LOVE EVERYBODY !
Four feet tall, bold to the core
Bones peaking, olive drab he wore
His limbs weary. feet they are sore
Undaunted he stands
Here to do what he was recruited for
His life, Our war !
Numerous like him, numerous to mourn
he is a soldier made and not born
robbed of the youth that jewels adorned
By day; audacious, night’s forlorn
Choices not offered, decisions forgone !
March soldier , Duty calls
Decision is in ones hand, hands stall
But believe you me, hands will still
Killed, he has, kill , he will
Outside calm , inside he screams
Ashes to Ashes , Dust to Dust
Soldier I am, therefore I must !
Now black like his soul, the memories
Purple; the skin, the body
Red likes the way they treat him
Yellow; the way he burns !
But later a day will come
he will be done and puts down the gun
The darkness, it will talk
The shadows, they will stalk
The fear, mock !
Smile because at last he can soar !
