Freedom is not free

                                     Love, it never lasts

Forgiveness has its limits,

                                               We are trapped within our pasts.


After
all the bodies fall,
After
all the blood is shed,

Where is the  " g i f t "  we fought for?
Is there a reason that we're dead?


And one tin soldier watches
As cities
                And bodies
                                      Burn

His glass eyes watch unblinkingly
For a child who won't return


Is this what hate has made of us?
What is the bloodshed worth?
We ask for wars and corpses...


...our hearts plead,
  
                                     "peace on earth."
AAAAH I AM SO PROUD OF THIS! :D Inspired by One Tin Soldier by Coven...part 3 of my challenge :)

I've heard that song! :tunes: And I love this interpretation of it! :heart: I like all the poems you've wrote based off songs. I recently wrote one myself. It's based off Avenged Sevenfold's "So Far Away" and it's a tribute to their late drummer Jimmy Sullivan :blackrose:

Don't know if you like A7X, but see what you think of the poem=> [link]
