Chapter 1

Under the cover of dark

The squad moves into position,


Like a viper

Striking at it’s prey,


Moving in to secure the premises,

Watching the movements of the enemy

Like hawks watching their prey.

A signal is all it takes

To send the soldiers running,

Taking all their enemies down.


The soldiers come home to their families,


Given time to rest and visit

Called heroes of our country

Being looked at like some incredible higher beings.


Trust, betrayal, war, torture, death, life

All coming back to haunt the soldiers when they sleep

Seeing the faces of people whom they let die,

Withering in the pain of their inevitable death

Cursing the name of the comrade who ran


Soldiers putting aside their feelings

Putting on the mask of the strong and brave

Letting people look at them like they’re perfect beings that can do anything

Lying for so long that they believe it themselves,

Until it becomes as true as life
