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
