The Unknown Soldier. -By Sunsip

Its true, I went away to war

and never left that foriegn shore

We won, or lost, I am still not sure

I am the Unknown soldier.

I only did what I was told,

I was not brave,

I was not bold

And yes. I wanted to grow old

I am the Unknown soldier.

To fight against men wearing different colours,

In the darkness you could not tell us from the others

All missing our girlfriends, our wives and our mothers,

I am the unknown soldier.

So, Wear a Poppy, say a  prayer,

let me know that you still care

Or tell  me “Why did I go there?”

I am the Unknown soldier.
