Escorted in solemn fashion
Carried on shoulders weighed down by the pain
Havoc is wreaked through the families with
Expressions gauged out by grief

Sobering thoughts of youth and all that is lost

They departed, fighting fit and keen
Accompanied by an eagerness
Only the brave wear
As armour to more frightening consequences

Their thoughts were on making a difference to the world

Of coming home resplendent in honour.
Not returning to our shores with their country's flag
Proudly veiling a polished coffin.

Wars have come and gone.
Millions of lads,
With bright futures beckoning,
Waded into a trouble strewn arena

Knowing nothing of youth and all that would be lost
