Ballad Of A Dead Soldier

by Jonadab Ezerie

In a world where heroes rise and fall,
Where valor is measured by the call,
There lived a soldier brave and true,
A hero, with no fear to subdue.
He walked with courage, never backing down,
A fearless soldier, wearing victory like a crown,
Protecting freedoms, defending the weak,
In battles fought, his courage would speak.
Trapped in a world where guns never cease,
This soldier fought bravely, seeking for peace,
Yet in the midst of the darkest night,
This unknown soldier shines a guiding light.
But time cuts sharply, and lives can't be spared,
On this fateful day, his end was declared,
A bullet's cruel kiss silenced his voice,
Yet his legacy lives on, forever our choice
So, raise your voices in sorrow and cheer,
For the Ballad of a dead soldier, we hold dear,
In battles won and in battles lost,
His sacrifice was a heavy cost.
So let us remember this soldier's plight,
To hope for a world where guns fall silent at night,
Where love and compassion fill every soul,
And ballads of dead soldiers are never told.
