Loss Of Soldier's Life
Will you join us?
Why not trust us? ?
Some of the boys were teasing a girl
Passing bad remarks and making ugly turn
Hey, you all stop
The boys thought they were making it flop show
But continued their ugly gesture
Young soldier jumped in to save her
Boys made early exit
But only to meet with
Iron rods, hockey sticks and with lethal weapons
The soldier faced bravely but fell on grounds
The boys ran away leaving behind bleeding soldiers
The public witnessed it with no resistance
No cry for help or asking for police
The soldier had to lose life with demise
The soldier was on short leave
In the evening he was to move
And join unit for active service
The bright star faded for no worth cause
Such is the scene in todays date
No one is willing to cooperate
The soldiers life could have been saved
If public had come to support and dared

I Am A Soldiers Woman
Blissful moonlight walks
Delicious dinners by candle light
This is the summary of the lives of women
Women whos men wear army greens
Women whos men have been chosen to fight
We know duty comes first
Yet standby them continuously we will
Through the lonely months we wait
Taking care of the home we share
While our soldiers serve and protect
We weep with all our hearts
Praying that the lives in the line of fire will not be taken from us
Wishing we were with our soldiers again
Pacing anxiously by the phone
Waiting to hear the voice of our far away love
Eyes keeping watch
For the mailman to bring news of their progress
Listening for the front door to open and their footsteps approach
The worry is unbearable
But push through we must
For a soldiers woman doesn't stop pushin
Until their soldier does
I am a soldiers woman
A soldiers Bride
I'll push and push
Until the day my soldier walks in that door
And he says'My Lelani, WE can stop pushin, the wait is over.'
I am a soldiers woman

An Old Soldier
A Tribute to all veterans, and all of our brave soldiers, God bless you!
Friend, I have faced many a difficult battle,
Dangerous missions requiring real backbone.
As a soldier, I have encountered hard times,
But this trip was the toughest one I had known.
My feet became heavy, but still I advanced...
Moving down the long hallway to where he lay;
This man was my best friend and fellow soldier,
But I had received news he would die today.
His room was now only a few feet from me;
I became frozen, standing there at his door.
I had come to say good-bye to my comrade,
For after today, I would see him no more.
He was sitting up, as if waiting for me;
I noticed an old familiar smile on his face.
He said, 'Soldier, I'm sure glad you came today,
For soon, ole buddy, I'll be leaving this place.
I guess you know I don't like these hospitals:
There's just too much sufferin' n' pain.
'Sides, these places stir up too many memories,
Some I've been reliving again and again.
But, Soldier, I've got a brand new assignment;
I'm goin' t' a land where there ain't no wars,
A place where the winds of peace are a'blowin'...
It's a long mission, away up b'yond the stars.
Yes, sir, I'm ready, be gone in a short while,
But there's a thing or two I'd like you to know.
You, partner, are this old soldier's best friend.
Sure gon'na miss our talks, and I've loved you so.'
As he spoke, a glow came upon his old face,
Like none that I had ever seen there before.
He said, 'Listen up, Soldier, I'm being called;
There's a messenger a'standin' at my door! '
I took his hand as he squeezed mine so tightly,
I swear, I have never seen him so at ease.
Then, his head turning, I saw him smile widely.
'The Commander's callin'... I feel heaven's breeze! '
Then just like that, that brave old soldier was gone;
I could feel his firm grip on my hand release.
I stood at full attention to salute him,
And said, 'So long, Dad... now go on... rest in peace.'

A Dialogue Between An Army And Some Young People
(There was an army which was composed of grown-ups (both men and women) . It was an army that was skillful in using swords, spears, bows, and arrows; it was an army where all members knew how to use their armors. They had enough knowledge on how to have combat with an enemy; they fit physically.
Now, this army engaged in a battle wherein their skills and armors they found that those were not enough. They were shocked because this battle where they engaged in never happened before. They could not make a strike, their arrows are not enough and their shields cannot shield them any longer
all that they know and have is not enough to win.
Then one day, they were swarmed by a large number of kids and youths (both boys and girls) . Both want to join the army but because the ages and physical attributes of these young people are not ideal and fit to join the army, thats why they laughed
but the young people still insisted to join
they started a conversation)
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! What is your desire that you persist to join us? Are you underestimating the terms and conditions of joining this army?
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! Do you think the battlefield belongs only to you? Do you doubt the things we can share?
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! You do not yet know how to use the sword! You do not yet know how to use the shield! You do not yet know hot to use our weapons!
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! You cannot always put your trust to strike to the sword and protection to the shield! Weapons just made our world empty of the good natural things that the people in the past saw!
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! What battle skills can you offer to us? What kind of combats have you already learned?
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! We come without your expected battle skills and learned combats.
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! What then can you offer us?
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! You taught us to observe you and listen to your counsels. Why, is it not right for us to let you know our secrets? Is it bad for us to give our ideas? Do you consider it trouble and distraction if we will tell you what we know? Do you limit us?
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! Your experiences are not enough for us to listen to your wisdom and ideas. You have not seen the world!
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! Do you think that the world is still as it is when you first saw it? Do think age is the limitation? Do you think we cant feel what is happening in the world right now? Look at you, you are shocked by our approaches and our actions because you use the psychology youve learned in the past and not the psychology that is applicable today!
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! But you are too young to join us!
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! LOOK TO US AS HUMAN BEINGS
you were like us before you joined the army
you have dreams
you have hopes
you have wills
you have desires
and all these things you fulfill now
CANT YOU LET US FULFILL OURS FOR THE BETTER OF THE WORLD AND THIS ARMY? O please test and base us not from our age. TRY US AND NOT OUR AGE.
ARMY: O innocent ones! O young people! Indeed the battle that we face changed, as well as the world. Indeed all of us are innocent of something. None of us can really define what a wise and genius person really is. So come and well teach you of what we know and tell us what you think. Though our ages have a gap but still let us understand each other. IT IS BETTER THAT YOU ARE WITH US IN THIS BATTLE RATHER THAN BEING AGAINST US OR BEING SLAVES AND SOLDIERS OF OUR ENEMIES
YOUNG PEOPLE: O great army! O our admired soldiers! Well listen to you more because you now decided to spare a time to teach and be with us. Business and pleasure you will give us for it! The sweetness of sacrifice let us understand so that the bitterness of the training well not have. O yes, let us be one and understand each other
lets not limit each other
MAKE US ONE OF YOU AND WE WILL BE WITH YOU
(And so this army that the world thought as it is was changed and is now an army that never existed before. With victories shall they end every war because the possibility of winning has now been greater.)
(dedicated to my God, family, nation, and loved ones)
