    Exclamation The Warrior's Plight

    This is a poem I wrote in my photo class when I had nothing to do. Yes, Seeley writes poetry in his freetime.

    "The Warrior's Plight"

    They were born to live and love free
    ---But that's not the life He had planned for me

    To fight, to bleed, to kill, to die
    ---For love is not to be felt but seen in each eye

    Watching others hold lover's hands, smile at eachother to sigh
    ---When I know that I fight for them so they might live but I should die

    For their freedoms I do burn, my life it shines so bright
    ---My life, like a match, a flash, then darkness, back to the dead of night

    They'll live long and happy, to drift off peacefully in their sleep
    ---They will be missed by their lovers, for them they so shall weep

    Weep for the warriors though, who fought for them they shall not
    ---To die of wounds on foreign soil, left to decay and rot

    No, don't you worry, shed no tears for me
    ---For on our own account, serving proud are we

    They take their freedoms lightly, never thinking twice
    ---Of those men who had to pay, for them the greatest price

    So next time thank these warriors, yes that is my simple plea
    ---Now at least I hope you know, freedom isn't free
