Heroes To Death

As for me, not to say
A hero, the waves swallowed him
Slammed him against the sharpest of rocks
In the middle of a glorious day
Twenty minutes, all the brothers count
Watching a limp body be pulled and shoved
With pulses that shatter machines

Just as they took him, the waves replaced him
With salty drowned lungs
Before he lay still, the heart stopped the fight
Hopefully, he turned to see the light
He didn’t move; he lost

To say God needed him
It would just be a Band-Aid to hide
All the brother’s guilt held inside
To soften their scars
But he is no more of what he was before
This angel just walks a different shore
