Preparation by kamikashin Preparation :iconkamikashin:kamikashin 0 0
Life is a
Fickle thing, twisting
Turning, trying to confuse.
You must learn to use
All that there is,
Leave nothing out,
And see the possibilities.
When its said and done,
Will you be able to say
I was one?
One of those who was there
For a friend
For the fall of nations
For your own failings?
Strive, make your own
Sense of honor,
Drive your own
Be your own
Savior. Rely on none
But you, though you must
Give of yourself,
But do it willingly.
Freedom is the greatest slavery,
You fight, you strain,
The things you love,
They are slain. And for
An ideal? A patch of dirt?
Fight for yourself,
For yourself,
For love.
Unless you are willing to be a slave,
Freedom is nothing. Until you have been
There is no understanding. Life
Will go on, with or without you.
Know this,
Embrace this,
Live with this,
And you will thrive on this.

Ardennes Forest
Ardennes Forest, World War Two
Jeff: I was a heavy weapons man. When we left our broken down farmhouse that we had been staying in for the last three days, they handed me a BAR and a pistol, with four clips of ammo, two more for the pistol. I had no idea where we were going, or why each of us was given demolitions gear.
Alber: We were heavily entrenched, and had been taking out occasional Allied scouting parties. My bolt-action rifle had thirty has marks. It had six when I went into this godforsaken forest. We thought one man may have escaped after the last attack, and now we were standing guard.
Jeff: We set out on foot through the woods, moving like banshees. As we moved northwest, taking cover in some rock formations, we spotted a tower. I knew now why we had the demolition charges. I spotted a man on the ridgeline, and we hid, waiting to see how many there were. We were twenty-one strong, but we were nothing to a tank.
Alber: There were six men covering our radio tower. With the ra

The Smith
A soft, lilting melody drifted through the window, causing a young man to pause his work. He sat down the hammer in his hand and walked to the door, turning the ancient latch. An official entourage was passing by, and two of the members spotted him, calling out.
"Ho! Desmond! Have you finished the shields we sent for?" Said the elder of the two, his face flushed from both excitement and drink.
"Not quite yet," said the young man. He had a strongly muscled frame, seemingly just out of his apprenticeship.
"How much longer will they take?" This came from the younger man. From the looks of him, he was a fop. He had wine stains down the front of an otherwise elegant tunic, which belied that fact.
Desmond turned and motioned towards the door. "I was just finishing the second one, sirs. If you would care to wait, it should be done in just a few minutes."
This idea appeared to suit the older man. He was a local night by the name of Ernest, well respected for his patience and love of the people

Fiery shoals of burning coral
Under a scarlet sky,
Holding in the tension
Of unknown lives.
In the end,
Water is all.
Always the same
Until the world's fall.

Insight on a Man
Pouring out,
Keeping me up,
Waking my body.
Can only be,
Will only be,
For you.
Lurking behind
A foggy mind.
Put me down.
Can only be,
Will only be,
For you.
Embracing me,
Burning my life.
So sweet.
Can only be,
Will only be,
For you.
Unlike any
Ever felt.
Why not me?
Can only be,
Will only be,
For you.
Bewilders our
World again
Why must we?
Can only be,
Will only be,
For you.
Watching our attempts
To succeed, crash
And burn,
Like every other.
Why would we
Be any different?
Is it fair?
Coming down
Quenching my
Thirsts, a dying man.
Can only be,
Must only be,
Filling me,
Melting ice
In my mind.
Can only be,
Must only be,
Can only be,
Must only be,
The one
Who saves me
From myself.
My strength.
