this is a collaberative thingy-magigy where i thought everyone interested in poetry, or just wanting to give it a go could write a rememberance day poem. It doesnt matter if you are absolutely rubbish or studying shakespere at uni, just give it a go. It can be short or long, whatever, as long as it has something to do with rememberance day. I just thought it would be a great way to show our respect to those who died to keep our contries free. (im english, so mine is focoused around england, but
To the soldiers who fought deep in the trenches, and
to those who battled our enemies on the front lines of war.
We shall forever be bound in the debt that we owe you
To the heroes who fought to keep their children free, and
to the veterans who laid down their lives for queen and country.
We owe such love and respect for your bravery and sacrafices
To those who believed good would triumph, and
to the leaders who lead us to make lives better for others.
Our gratitude leaves us at your mercy
To those who had to live on, after losing so much, and
to those whom they lost to the fate of warfare.
we are nothing when compared to you, and the infitity of that which you deserve
To the soldiers out there now, fighting for justice, and
to those who have lost anyone to such battles.
We feel ony a fraction of your pain, and for your patriotism you are the heroes of our country
To those who have fought to keep england free, and
to those who keep on fighting
The memory of you will live on for ever,
