BEING CREATIVE – 3

BOY SOLDIER

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

lra_child_soldier
Outside calm , inside he screams

Ashes to Ashes , Dust to Dust

Soldier I am, therefore I must !

Now..

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…

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 !

But smile

Smile because at last he can soar !

DON’T BE AFRAID

Maybe it will just be one of those average days.

Maybe you will be walking home after a deal

or waltzing in you pajamas after a thorough clean up.

Or maybe you will be too busy drinking to even notice.

Notice that something has changed.

The slightest of the shifts in the air.

Maybe it will take you time to realize that.

Or maybe you will stop doing everything at once.

But that moment will surely arrive.

An inevitable aftermath, if you will.

Realization will dawn

Maybe you will even try to outrun it

Or maybe you will try a clever way out

but surely it will catch up

surely the right person will notice.

Maybe the green works

Or maybe it is orange that comes out on top.

What ever it maybe

Don’t Be Afraid

Cause surely you have experience

And I am sure they won’t do anything that you haven’t already !
