World War 1

War poetry 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.
The medals we wear,represent our commitment to our country.
Every night is a living nightmare,
My heart pounds out my chest.
Where there is war there is peace,
Where there is peace there is war.
