Wounds of War

This storm of fire raining down
Won't soften this frozen ground
Steel my nerves and check my fear
As the enemy grows near
Left my life to save us all
What will happen if we fall?

My target moves just into range
I hope and pray the wind won't change
Exhale slowly, squeeze just right
One less enemy to fight

Let the waves crash over my sense of justice
I thought my cause was selfless, righteous
I believed myself purified and justified

I move up to inspect my kill
Using all my stealth and skill
The man before me bleeding out
Leaves me little room for doubt

The child this man had left behind
Gave him something to remind
Her little heart was full of love
It lays beside him 
Soaked in blood
