Ebbs and flows of the battle
ever seeking one side today
within constant engagement
raging yells of triumph heard
then the low cries of defeat
each soldier swaying feelings
we’ll win the day or tomorrow
uttering then ‘all is lost – run’
no arrogance is found here
just emotions of the young
without the wisdom of age
amour-propre of immature
in self-respect/confidence
then in desolation today!
