The Heat of Battle

32 1 2

Riding to the mission

The outside burning hot

I look down for a second

When I hear something shot

I hear a scream

When I turn to my left

My soldier is dying

From a shot to the chest

I tell him it's ok

After the shot

Saying you're going home

Knowing he's not

The blood is rushing

He's praying to God

He's giving up the fight

Then his heart just stops

I wiped off my tears

Picked up my gun

Shooting the enemy

Until the fighting is done
