    Poem Commentary

    I wrote this poem for all of the places struck by war, all the soldiers, veterans and all the fallen soldiers.

    A Soldier's Eyes

     

     

    Fear rises as the battle starts

    as they look around and feel as though they are already dead.

    Their eyes tell everything we couldn't have imagined

    You feel everything as their gaze

    Burns down deep into your soul

    Their eyes are empty, cold, lonely

    The unseeing eyes are the only ones that have seen the end of war

    the whole story is told

    in a soldiers eyes

    This brings out the sadness of wars for me. Thanks for a great poem. Reminds me of my gramps.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
