The Hardship of War

By PrincessGrace, Jacksonville, FL

Adrenaline rushes through his veins
His shaky fingers struggle to hold
The gun he loads in the midst of battle
The American’s heart pounds in his ears
His throat dries and his voice dies away
He sees the enemy lines advancing
While his own line falls away

The Redcoat’s menacing eyes he sees
Lock their gaze on the helpless soldier
The American’s friend; a close comrade
The hard-hearted Redcoat cruelly murders
The poor young American is horrified
And stares dumbstruck at the corpse
Who had been like a brother to him

Then the cold blooded Redcoat turns to him
