ZiauThis actually is about more than myself, this has to do with a lot of people we see in our lives that are a lot like me. I am not the only person like myself, so this actually speaks for quite a few people, and per usual, this is the only proper forum to post things like this on. If you don't like my writing, make sure to comment, that way I know not to post it anymore. Remember, everyone in this poem is the same person, symbolically, though they all hate each other, the explanation alone should help you understand me just a bit better.

++++
+I Bleed my Blood for Myself
++++
+By Kelly Welch, a.K.a Ziau Jua.

+There once was a soldier who grew up with many uncles and aunts,
+From the day he was of age, he bled his blood only for France,
+Took him to war, away from his home, to a war in which they stood no chance.

+They would all tell him, "we fight for our country, we fight for our pride",
+His head only bowed, eyes tucked away on the bumpy, fateful ride,
+And as they came to base, and they started to file out, he sighed.

+The plane trip out was concise, and the soldiers were ready to kill,
+Loading their rifles, and their pistols, knives bared all for the thrill,
+Except for our hero, who's mood was not quite yet over the hill.

+Dropping with packs, chutes in the back, they mounted assault,
+Any idea of turning back now was put to an immediate halt,
+And before he jumped out, took a life, he felt that France was at fault,
+He wasn't bleeding for himself.
+++++++

+Now we are in a day, when we all want to get paid,
+But this young man led a silent crusade,
+On the internet forums speaking out, day, by day, by day, by day.

+What was his purpose, to incite political reform,
+Wanting to see the American ideals simply reborn,
+But the people who mocked him left him broken and torn.

+So you know what he did, he loaded his truck,
+Took his shotgun, his ideas, prepared them, not giving a fuck,
+And as he approached his Town Hall, he was shit out of luck.

+On the steps were the police, hearing of his plan,
+They aimed their guns, ready to take the life of the man,
+And the idealist lost his inspiration, "If you want it, then you can",
+He wasn't about to bleed for himself.
++++++++

+His mother was ill, there was nothing he could do,
+Hear heart was so warm, but her mood was so blue,
+And as her sickness crept, neither had a clue.

+The boy had given it up, come back to her home,
+Gave up his friends, gave it all, sacrifice for his own,
+It was the best thing he had given her, and "I love you,.." she'd moan.

+Alas, she was slipping away, losing what she had left for the fight,
+The doctor had told him that she might not make it through the night,
+But they both stayed hopeful, the thought of her getting better in sight.

+And so the son waited, wanting nothing more than it all to make sense,
+Nothing he could do in his poor mother's defense,
+The more he thought about it, the pain just got thicker, more dense,
+Because he could only bleed for himself.
+++++++

+The soldier in France, his gun spilled scarlet fresh,
+Leaving holes in his enemies like the holes in polyester mesh,
+Just pulling the trigger in fear, surely cowardice, none the less.

+But as he took a shot to the collar, and sanguine ran it's course,
+The French soldier cried out with a voice shaky and hoarse,
+Falling do his knees, his body cold with remorse.
+"I didn't bleed my blood for myself."
++

+And as the man at the end of his life's twisted ride,
+Stepped out and put his shotgun on the ground with a sigh,
+The officers yelling "Step back or die".

+He held up his protest, speaking of the health care debate,
+Speaking of the politics, how unjust, his mood was irate,
+He spoke out these words, said them, his name, then the date,
+"I don't bleed my blood for myself."
++

+He heart was so weak, beating slower by the hour,
+His life was about to come toppling down like a tower,
+And his thoughts fell apart like the petals on a wilting flower.

+About to lose his mother, the doctor did ask,
+Hand on his shoulder as the woman was ready to pass,
+"I'm sorry, it is almost her time, but good things can't last."
+He replied, "I can only bleed my blood for myself."

KayteearThis recalled me a lot of things. One of them was this quote from Tim O'Brien:
[size=10][i]A true war story is never moral. It does not
instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest
models of proper human behavior, nor restrain
men from doing things men have always done.
If a war story seems moral, do not believe it. If
at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if
you feel that some small bit of rectitude has
been salvaged from the larger waste, then you
have been made the victim of a very old and
terrible lie.[/i][/size]

It's us who should thank you.
