Soldiers Lessons


Soldiers Lessons

Walls of black granite
Many names upon them
All have ghosts living behind them
Kneeling down, feel the coldness
Look into the reflection

Spirits gleam
Stories are meant to be told
These stories are in this wall
Looking at the reflection
They are calling to get out
Wanting attention paid
Learn from lessons gone

History unfolds before us
Uniform blues, greens, grays
All become the same color
This wall houses everyone
Dying for honor
