Old Soldier, My Soldier

A Poem By Anna // 7/20/2010

Old soldier, My soldier
They’re saying you lost this battle

It’s time to pass the gun
Arm your sons now
You’ve always shown them how
To follow Me in battle

Old soldier, My soldier
Come for your medals
The world’s not worthy of you anymore

They’re saying you lost this battle,
But soldier, My soldier
You won!

The war was fought long ago
Before your sons
Before your birth
Before the stars
I won it
And every war that counted
I won that,
You won it too

Old soldier, My soldier
You lay your medals at My feet
Come home to see
The One you fought for,
The One Who fought for you
You’re home, so home
Home to stay.



This.  Was. Incredible.

Absolutely amazing.  Well done! My favorite lines were:

And every war that counted
I won that

I'll be handwriting this one and hanging it on my wall, just so you know.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

This is simply beautiful.

This is simply beautiful. Simply beautiful.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
