We Are Soldiers

The light flashed above us
Alerting our brigade completely

It was the time to drop down
From high above the skies

The mission was critical
As countless lives dependent upon it

The first squadron dived below
They were the bravest of all

The wind carried them smoothly
Towards their targets far below

They did what they had to do
And then it was our turn

The light flashed once again
More brightly than ever before

We all took our biggest leap
Towards the shiny moment of glory

The darkness of night didn’t slowed us
As light above guided us through

As we edged towards our targets
I looked upon to my comrades

We were born to do this
To bring life upon the earth

One by one, we all fall down
And completed our mission

But not before bringing smiles
Upon countless dried souls

Their long wait was over now
And prayers were finally answered

In the form of us
The drops of rain!

night rain

      Wrote this on a summer when there was no rain, which made me wonder about those who are more less fortunate than me.
      Thank you for liking this, V.J. 🙂
