End

The end of this world
Is different in separate eyes
To the young
A toy lost is their demise
To the adolescent
A lost love brings rains
To an adult
A car wreck changes it all
But what if your end
Actually stared you down
Square in the face
And dared you to move?
A flash of light
And your world
No matter how old or young
Was in the hands of a bullet.
A frontline infantryman
Can’t even see it coming
And it takes his life
Regardless of his circumstances
Bringing the end of his world
And a shared ending
To those who loved him

Dedicated to all those unknown soldiers lost in the field of battle
