Trench Warfare

I live in fear

I live in fear

I made friends, and lost them all

When will this endless nightmare end?

I dug trenches

Surrounded by long, barbed wire

It is cold, crowded, and crummy

I am frightened

like orphans lurking in the night

I am stuck on the western front

I can hear shots

They speak as they are fired

One hits me and I close my eyes

I lived in fear

But I do not need to now

I can now take my final rest
