Tempered with Perseverance

March 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

Can I sit idle?

Perched on a cloud forever?

The image bores me.

I pray the answer is no.

With God’s permission,

tempered with perseverance,

I would wander width

and breadth of His creation.

I pray the answer is yes.

Victory’s Color

Be victorious

Otherwise do not come back

My dad’s brief goodbye

Desert sands absorb our youth

Victory is stained dark red

What is yours is not

The sands shift under your feet

Pushed aside again

Empires trampled your past

Persia subjugates

The Greeks made you like the dogs

and the Pharaoh’s toy

Roman curiosity

Byzantine’s bondman

Caliphates and Crusaders

Then the Ottoman

The crowns of Europe betray

You are Palestine

The ghosts of the past haunt you

Violence holds you hostage

have we enticed into a Third Front?

Twelve to Libya! Why twelve?

Check out this link for what I believe the answer is: http://www.goarmy.com/special-forces/team-members.html
Twelve is such a coincidental number of soldiers to send to assist with the cleanup and construction details apparently required for the American Embassy in the war-torn country of Lybia. 

And the way it came across was,

Hey we decided to send some dudes to like paint the walls and you know.  Fix all the stuff that was like, vandalized, like.  Ya. 

One more thing, we have already sent four to

“…assist the State Department in Tripoli.”

Why four?

“For operational purposes each of the two Task Units are usually split into around eight teams, each comprising of 4 men.

Who inspires me?

Not the politician

Don’t get me started

They just raise my blood pressure

Not the movie star

That is not reality

Everyday people

Ones that make a difference

Everyday people

These are who inspire me
