Song of the Flag

Song of the Flag

I stand in the pit

Broken roots leaving marks

Decorating my body

Creating a map

Of all the places I’ve been.


Screaming and explosions

Bullets raining

From Above

Dare I sneak a peek?

Oh, what the hell.


I pull my helmet close

Hesitantly rising from my

Safe Haven

I spot you in the distant


Thick skin unmarred.


A strange sensation takes over

I defiantly stand tall

Your reflective

Red, White, and Blue

Shines in my eyes.


A bullet pierces my skull

The Old me lies dead

In the pit

I rise from the dead

Marching towards you.


They cannot stop me

I will remain untouched

The voices drown out

My lips part and it begins

I sing your Song.
