Conquest of Freedom

Hopes First Glimpse

I approached the battlefield,
With my hand grasping my hilt.
It seemed as if I might yield,
Running far away, only to later wilt.

Mothers and lovers were weeping.
Enemies and Allies were dying.
As the sons and fathers of freedom fought,
For a forgotten ideal centuries sought.

I drew my sword and raised it high,
And let out a thunderous cry!
For today I would not die,
Or ponder the reasons why.

I would battle till the day was won,
Or all that which we dreamt was gone.
