We Will Not Surrender!

Gentlemen, we are fighting a war. A war that calls us to liberty. A war that calls us to fight against our captors. A war that calls us to regain what we have lost. Our homes; our families; our freedom. You have answered that call. We have fought battles. We have won. Now, when we have no chance of winning, we will not surrender!

They will fight brutally. They will come at us like dogs. We will look straight into their canons; we will stare up their guns; we will hear the clash of steel against steel, feel the blade at our throats—and we will fight on!

The Heart Cast Aside

I stand and shiver,
it is just the way I live now.
The tide is closing in,
it is drowning my burning heart.

Clouding thoughts,
a foggy life.
I feel like you were a dream,
your intense blue eyes.

Laughs have flown,
my smiles gone.
You wear yours for her alone,
She’s the one you’ve found.

No clarity of any kind.
Like the winds in the cove
you haunt my mind.
You have made me unknown.

My sunny days
now dark and arresting.
Drenched in grey
