Way Of The Warrior

This poem was inspired by
(Robert Frost’s “A Soldier”)
Way Of The Warrior

The warrior’s body thrown to the ground
His soul released from its earthly bounds
Freed to a place not known by men
Humanity struggles to understand.
The effect of his actions on the planet
Taunt the universe we take for granted
The weapons used to fall the man
Rip and tear destroying the land.
Sight set on victory at any cost
The warrior once stood tall, now is lost.
