remembrance day poem.Why should we remember?More Like This
15 minutes before the wave of silence. What is going through my head?
Is it my new school shoes or faces of the dead?
How can I remember someone I haven't even met?
That's not my problem, it doesn't concern me.
They were not my friends or my family.
I've never met a soldier, never heard a gun shot,
never seen my comrade fall, no dead bodies left to rot.
I've never even seen a body lifeless, never heard a child scream,
I just can not picture any wars, not even in my dreams.
But maybe that is why I am thankful to the soldiers off to war,
so my family and my future children can be free forever more.
They'll never have to hear a gun shot, nor see bodies in the street,
never hear a mother cry, and they will forever be at peace.
Thank you, from me and my future children.
