FINAL FOXHOLE

He fought his best and stayed alive
while in his foxhole his brothers died.
Was it fate he’d live to see that day
that final foxhole in which he’d pray
in which he would fight his very best
to send his foes to their final rest?
Was it skills or actions pre-ordained
leaving him whole among those slain
and fatally maimed begging to die,
killing his soul hearing them cry?
