Run for the Trenches

Run for the trenches.
Go, child!
Before it's too late!
Don't get caught in the first crossfire
You'll not die today.
It's not time to find your fate, 
No
It's not time for the willow
To weep

Their guns are soon to
Water
The ground with our blood
The roots are soon to cry out
In agony
At the red liquid that speaks 
Of grenades and
Bullets,
Daggers and 
Cannons

But let us die,
Us who have lived long
Fought hard.
Not the young
Not the young.

Let me die,
An old soul, an old soldier
Let me join my brethren
Who died here many a year ago
Let my memory mix with 
The brothers and the fathers,
The brave and the willing, the
Defenders, the
Ones who protected our
Country.

Go back to the trenches,
Young man.
It's not your time to die
Yet if you choose to stand with me
Comrade in arms, comrade in death
It's been an honor, child.

God bless America.

    Every time I read your work, I think "wow." How do you do this? You use simple, small words, and you build a fortress with them. This was so powerful, and too many people die young. I loved this piece.
