"After The Battle" -

I wrote a lot of poetry when I was a kid but I've lost most of it and none of it was much good anyway. (If I want a good laugh, all I have to do is take out my first poetry notebook and read through some of the things I proudly scribbled down when I was eight.) There is, however, one of these early poems that I don't laugh over quite so much. When I was little, I wrote a lot of things that I didn't even understand. This is one of them. Now it makes sense to me. Now I realize what it means.

"The face is lifeless,
The eyes but stare
No heartbeat stirs the breast
No wind can blow the hair.

Here is the reason for it:
This arrow ended his time-
It's shaft looks so familiar
I wonder if it was mine."
-B.J.J. aka StrongJoy
