My little war hero

January 25, 2019


Why do you look so down
What's the reason for your tears 
You look at me like
You haven't achieved a thing
So listen as I say 

You walk around 
Detached from the world
Never looking at anyone's eyes
Not wanting to believe 
Their pity white lies

I see you falling 
Drowning and sinking to your knees
Struggling to unsee the vicious galore
You seem to not know me
Nor another a soul

Do you know
The taxi I took
The driver's abode
The driver himself
Is alive because of you

So hold your head high
Let the light reflect in your eyes
Your victories reach higher
Then the freakin' night sky
You are a hero, so don't you cry

Listen to me my little war hero, no one can shine brighter than you

    This is poem has a very interesting flow as well and specific word choices that seem to have an underlying storyline that was not quite tied up in the last cause. It's really cool and encouraging.
