In Response to Shedreams word bank
No longer shall I now pretend
My humanity savored or secure
For my virtue is surrounded
And the Wolves are at the door
This is no ordinary flight of fancy
Tis my right that I reclaimed
The Battle Scars I wear with pride
But regret those that I maimed
Once more I'll stand on Hallowed ground
Acceptance of my plight
May my end be swift and silent
As Arrows in the night.

What an awesome ending

This feels like a personal elegy

told by a hero rising to face the end.

wonderful poetry

 Graham to me you have earned that right.

This work of yours here tells of wars blight.

Good Job with the word bank.

I am astounded by this grand poem that seems a classical lyric.  It is very special.  I so enjoyed it.  It tells of time and life -- and -- death.  So be it.  Amen.  --David

Sounds like I am not alone with unresolved memories of war time activities.  Mine are not horror memories, but just things I would prefer to forget.  I could feel the pain in your words.  I pray this is fiction, but I fear it is not.
Nicely written
