    An ode to the lost:
    I drink in your name,
    to those who have fallen
    without fanfare or fame;
    To the battles you won
    and the battles you lost,
    to the triumphs you knew
    before you paid such a cost;
    To the blood that you spilled
    as you so valiantly fought -
    just know that your bravery
    will not be forgot;
    Some fell before their time,
    some fell much later -
    but in the grand scheme of life,
    neither one is greater;
    There's no shame in fighting,
    not even when you fall,
    for life is a hard fought war
    that eventually claims us all.

    I suppose I probably should have titled this "An Ode To The Fallen"... eh, well, it doesn't really matter. Either one works.

    Wow, thank you. I don't think I'm worthy of that kind of praise... I mean, I'm glad you liked it, but top quality is probably pushing it, lol. My skills as a writer are average at best. There are much better writers here.

    Quit selling yourself short--you are clearly better than average at writing :)

    Oh come on, I've seen your writing... you're much better at it than I am. I forget what website it was that I found your poetry at, but your work easily deserves to be published. Mine might be fit to scribble on a bathroom stall, but that's about it.
