/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stumbling and staggering every which way.

From sunrise to sunset - the stories say.

Lost and beaten, broken to the core.

Of this world - a solider no more.

Living an existence of half-truths and lies.

Of love, of children - of apples and pies.

Silenced and bound by a promise made.

Life comes to its ending - a debt finally paid.

Bloody and battered, knees hitting the ground.

Four rings drop - not making a solitary sound.

Opening the gate and standing fast.

Arms spread wide - smiling at last.

Breath-to-breath.

Death-to-death.

…He tumbled…and fell…

The story is over, not much more to tell.

Brother now fights alongside brother.

Two soldiers in hell.
