I Am A Solider (Part-II)


] I am a Solider

I was a Solider of a Sacred Army, Sacred Land…

Now, I am a Solider of a Broken Army, Broken Land.

I am a Solider wounded so bad that I can’t walk

Limping as I am through the canvas of my Heart..

I see my Nation holding on the dream that I take them across..

Trance that they hold from times unknown to me

To get them the alleviation of free beings.

The reprieve of  chucking a Pain so archaic..

and a Hope so stark….but how would I tell them that

Now, I am a Solider of a Broken Army, Broken Land.

I am a Solider wounded so bad that I can’t walk

I gave it all that I had…..

Each nip of my  Herculean body,,,

Every Driblet of my blood….all of my desires

that of my clan….Moreover, capitulated my neighborhood

My friends to whom I was a Champion….

yeah, my mother had a future in me as had I

My beloved who was to me what you are to your’s…..

The plumage of my colored phoenix.. but

Now, I am a Solider of a Broken Army, Broken Land.

I am a Solider wounded so bad that I can’t walk

I am the owner of a repose body now,,,,,,

My feet splutter the burden of me…

My heart beats hollow, out of blood

I grapple to keep my self going now…

I mutter the prayer that I learnt from my Father

I clench my teeth to the extent of broken mouth

tired is my body now, as is my mind

Now, I am a Solider of a Broken Army, Broken Land.

I am a Solider wounded so bad that I can’t walk

I want to sleep now…. besides the people of my kin

In the warmth of my mother’s bossom

And under the solitude of a dusking sun,,,,

Out of the peril of  War…in the prophylactic arms of my Father

In the embrace of my beloved

I want to go Home, I want to go Home….

Now, I am a Solider of a Broken Army, Broken Land.

I am a Solider wounded so bad that I can’t walk
