Patriot Dreams

Standing on the precipice of
            Willful measure,
                    Far removed from
Rambling reality
He holds his breath… and waits
                  In watchful vigilance.
Prepared to give,
            To live…
                        To die
If die he must to keep them safe.
He never stops to question why.
The why was answered long before
His watchful eyes reflected on       
The distant haze of far horizons.
Lessons from the bowels of Hell have
Been his teacher,
Taught him well,
Filled his nights with restless dreams of
Secrets he can never tell.
Failure? Unacceptable.
A traitor’s wage is paid in blood.
The patriot will never sleep
Til others stand where he has stood.
