pens the truth none will ever read….

He penned his words for all to see,
shouted loud, “Hey look at me!”
But none would read, and none would learn
the many truths of his concern.

One day the ink, it wouldn’t flow
so he went where no one would go,
looked down on the world he knew…

“…all the cures of gods and men could not restore what had not been…”

He died inside so long ago.
All was lost to all he’d know —
the bitter cold had took his heart,
and from the world he wished to part.

Texts tell of comradery
and battles long since fought
for causes long forgotten,
and surely all for naught.
A million souls, their stories told
in blood spilled on the grounds
of battlefields all lost to time
and glory never found.
