A/N - This poem was originally for an assignment in English class, but it reminded me of the current Great Shinobi War for some reason. Enjoy.

We knew what was coming

From the start, We knew

Of the approaching horror

Beyond our front lines

But we couldn't stop

We wouldn't dare to

For a soldier's life

Falls before his duty

The innocence was fading

Being taken by the venom

From the fabeled Eden

And greed was its core

Our fate was sealed

But there was no protest

Though war consumed man

And fear took over humanity

The torch, Yours

To protect, Yours

To stand by

Never let its flame wither

But if the snake

Comes around, Red eyes

Filled with sin

Hold the torch high

And succeed it
