Why do I feel guilty ?


Why do I feel guilty?



Why did I survive?



Why did so many friends die?



Why am I still alive?





I have seen terrible things



That I was not meant to see



All the memories of carnage



Will always forever haunt me





War is a terrible thing



Taking soldiers in their prime



War is an abomination to man



For each families loss is a crime





I cry for all lost in conflict



I cry with an aching heart



For families who have lost loved ones



Who are now forever far apart?





The answer came to me



As I was deep in my sorrow



A voice whispered in my ear



In you, there will be a new tomorrow





For through your experiences and pain



You are the ambassador for those who died



You can help to build a future



Remembering all the fallen with pride





Only God has the answer



One day I shall know why



Why the soldiers in this world



Through battle had to die
