The Silent Guard

Seated alone
An equestrian of years gone by
Watching over the world’s

Wondering why
So many died to defend
And all for naught

An austere vision
This hero of old
Upon his steed so bold

A silent teardrop forms…
The transparency of Life
His realization of what shall come

Who could predict
Humanity’s flaws
Would win
After such a struggle and fight
Man – his own enemy
Deterioration and decay
Susan Werby

Dedicated to all the brave Military who selflessly serve

“It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.”
