World War 1

There I was lying there scared, afraid cold…
Everyone asleep, quiet as a mouse and alive!
To be a soldier you need courage and bravery,
Stay ALERT! Stay CALM! Stay ALIVE! Is what we have to remember.
The tears we cry form a river,
The river we form weeps.
Every day we drown, desperate in our own sorrow,
The gas we breathe is bleeding to the eyes.
There is no home for us,
W are lost I our own mind.
The medals we wear, represent our commitment to our country.
Every night is a living nightmare,
My heart pounds out my chest.
Were there is war there is peace,
Were there is peace there is war.
