Description:




A soldier



A soldier fights in a war for oil
he dies
his family gets some money
but that don't bring back the loved ones
that died in a war for oil.
While we already have are own problems
on are own soil.
This soldier gets stabbed in the back
He starts to get cold
he runs out of breath.
They try there best
but now he lays there and rests
with the look of failure in his eyes.
Only thing he imagine before he dies is his family crying and his kids asking where daddy.
His family gets some money from the government
but that will never bring back
the father and the lover and the friend that they once had.

A soldier fights in a war for oil
He dies
this family cries
they couldn't say even say bye
to the father, the lover and the friend.
They once had.

This family get so sad
they can't grab what they once had
the father, the lover and the friend is now above them high in the cloud watching over them
These boys start to act bad
all they want is there dad.


A soldier fights in a war for oil
He dies
for a government that pays money for a life that was lost in the war for oil.
But it will never be enough to
bring pack the
the father, the lover, and the friend.

  I really liked this...thank you for asking me to check it out. My fav stanza is:

This family get so sad
they can't grab what they once had
the father, the lover and the friend is now above them high in the cloud watching over them
These boys start to act bad
all they want is there dad.

I really like how you way you put "the father and the lover and the friend that they once had." through out the poem, it really brought out the point on who and what was lost.

A great piece. Thank you for sharing :)

Peace.

  I loved this poem ssssssssooooooooo much it expresses everything i try to tell people who are so pro- Bush/pro-war. You cant just pay someone for a life. I mean just imagine... you could be destoying so many people... so many futures. I mean what if the man had a son that was going to grow up and find the cure for the common cold or cancer or something, but when his dad died he went into serious depression and got involved in the drug game and OD'ed or somethin. I mean you only get one life and the goverment thinks they have the right to put a price on it. So... anywayz I loved your poem.

  it is a pretty impressive to see young poets getting to grips with this serious stuff. Liz has probably said exactly what I would say both technically in terms of form and in terms of content. I wonder if you have personally experienced this? It is a very raw feeling indeed and you have got stuck in well to try to show you understand it. after all its your generation that will have to sort it all out . good luck.

  the soldiers of todays army are nothing more than bushs pawns, that is not a slur about the military its a slur towards are "fine" president. its sad that good people swear to protect us and the freedoms that we have and then they are used to make his wallet fatter, typical typical bush

  well this ia a long poem but that is good,there are a few spelling errors but those are easy fixes, there is a flow to the poem but it gets a little choppy in the middle and then you fix it in the end, rewording might help with that, and there is a lot of emotions that come through this piece, you feel a lot of anger because this person has died and you couldn't say good bye to them they are just gone and that sucks, you also feel a lot of saddness, i think the war that we are in is kind of stupid too, it is mostly about oil but remember when we first went it was for weapons, there is none and now we are helping the people and they really do need it, and many of them don't want it, anyway i'd have to say that my favorite stanzas would be

"A soldier fights in a war for oil
He dies
this family cries
they couldn't say even say bye
to the father, the lover and the friend.
They once had.

This family get so sad
they can't grab what they once had
the father, the lover and the friend is now above them high in the cloud watching over them
These boys start to act bad
all they want is there dad."

and i like these so much because of what they say it sucks when someone dies and it hurts even more when you couldn't say good bye to that person.
