       I recently visited Arlington with my family and the place chilled me. You can't comprehend the sheer number of graves there, of fallen soldiers through the ages. I was shocked by the number of 'unknown' graves and the monuments dedicated to thousands of faceless brave men we will never know.

    Arlington, oh Arlington,
    you bear your burden well,
    and provide brave men with lasting peace
    from their brief sojourns in hell.

    In your arms you hold the weary,
    the scared and battle scarred,
    the men who died with honor
    as our countries gates they barred.

    To your breast you clutch the bold,
    the men so strong and true,
    The ones who fought for freedom,
    for ours and for others too.

    With your sighs you call the broken,
    and lay them down to rest
    beside their fallen comrades,
    beside the very best.

      I've never been to Arlington but I know of the graves. Tons of soldiers died, and it was horrible. I tohubght it was well written. I just recently attempted to write some war poems myself, though they do not convey the effects of war very well. Grea job and keep writing.
