Another Man Down

Guns ablaze
Not a sight of peace today
Will you stand with me
Against the raging armies?
A band of brothers inseparable
Fighting for what had been the goal
I watched you stand your ground
Giving it your all
Suddenly I heard a gunshot round...!
And, another man down...
Death and pain
Another life blown away
I’m sorry my friend
You let your guard down in the end
Whether it was your time
Whether you had lost your mind
You could have fought harder
You could have lasted longer
But I promise I will carry you
And I promise I will bury you
Along with the others
All the would-be saviors
