A Soldier's Thoughts

Following orders
Doing my job
Shelled day and night
For what we believe to be right

Out of the trenches
Advance to their lines
Thousands are slaughtered
By shells and land mines

The fighting now stopped
Now silent the alarms
Those that were foes
Are now brothers in arms

Artist's Description

A short one written ahead of my forthcoming trip to Belgium, I am hoping to recite this during the visit to Langemark German cemetery, where we will be paying our respects to the fallen.
