Those Who Fight the Wars

One soldier said,
"The past is your last breath,
The present is this breath,
And the future is your next breath."
Surrounded by death
By carnage
By constant sorrow
They carry on
Fight on
They're not killing machines
The opposite, really
They're human
They have hopes
They have dreams
They have regrets
They have heartaches
Some have lovers they wish to protect
Others have families they wish to keep
Uncertain of their time
Uncertain of reasons
They fight on
Humanity fights on
