Eternal Vigilance

Ever standing
Eternal vigilance
We progress
Along this dark parade

Ever loyal
Not forgetting
What our brothers
Here have paid

Born of honour
Death defying
Standing strong
Against the looming tide

We are fallen
Damned for caring
We are a peace
Too long denied

Pray dear mother
For your children
Among us trapped
Along this path

We were once you
We will protect you
Through the dirge
And aftermath

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
