A Soldier's Face

Poem By Sian Mein

The soldier is a shell
A shell of metal medals
The soldier is the messenger
With a country's deadly message

The soldier is a trained killer
A soldier's eye is trained
On an enemy pre-defined
Our blackest fears framed

The soldier carries out
the orders of a few
A soldier's hands are tied
By a flag's blood white and blue

A soldier's flesh and blood
Is spent on the battlefield
War's currency
The years of our youth we steal

A soldier has a face
A soldier's heart is not unknown
It's their heart we all must face
Can we bear to face our own.

From a short distance,
I look upon your beautiful face.
You notice and smile
With the most humbling grace.

In My Mind I Hold A Picture

In my mind I hold a picture
Of how we used to be
For everything you needed
You could turn to me.

Lord Of The Flies

The boys are in pain,
On an island with no where to hide
A gaping hole in society
One is killed with a powerful blow

When I Was In Tears

You have been my friend for a very long time,
I asked you to bend and you made a rhyme,
When I needed you, you were always there
When I was in tears, you would say its not fair,


You make me smile
When I'm having a bad day
You make me laugh
At everything you say.

More Than A Year Ago

The very first day
More than a year ago
When our eyes first met
I'll never let go.
