Those Soldiers

Up, on those mountains,
At those freezing heights
Everything trembles
Under those heavy feet.
Those unabated spirits
Roar against every bullet
Which pierce their skin
Obliterate when they touch
Their mighty souls!
Every blow that dent
Their bodies, melt when they
Kiss their relentless grit.

O Mighty soldiers!
Your love for the motherland
Flows deep in the veins
Of the nation you guard.
O Brave soldiers!
Your love for the motherland,
Breathe deep in those muddy trenches
Where you sleep at last!
O Brave warriors!
You are an epitome of sacrifice,
Your tale will be told till we survive!

    This is a beautiful tribute to those lost at war, any war and let’s pray there will be no more war. Love and hugs to you and yours Joni

      Yes, I tried to write through universal point of view.. The soldiers are the worst hit in any war.. It should be avoided at any cost.. Thank you for your thoughts!

        I couldn’t agree more with you. Their lives are precious. My father was a soldier and he lied about his age so he would have food to eat and a place to live and I am so proud of him for that. He was proud to serve his Country for twenty years. No matter where a person is from without war we would not need anymore soldiers, what a beautiful thought. I love it. Hope you have an amazing day my friend. Love and hugs, Joni

    Great poem. Flows well and nice use of repetition.

    Suggestions–I would capitalize brave so it matches Mighty. Or un-capitalize Mighty so it matches brave.

    Subject/verb agreement: Should be “flows” not “flow” to match the singular subject (Your love for the mother land)

    • singhpiyush6089 June 26, 2020 / 3:10 pm

      Yes, missed it.. should be flows.. Thank you for your feedback!
