I Am Just A Soldier.
Here's another poem.

Please don't forget me darling, I'm so far away from you,
I'm here in the desert, fighting for what I feel is right,
No matter where I am, no matter how far apart we are,
You haunt me in these nightmares, that pollute my mind at night.

So as I stand here, on the edge of an abyss,
I wait to hear your voice, it frees me from this hell that I... am living in.
And although, you cannot hear me cry, I weep for you,
I cry these tears of sorrow, for the love that I have lost,

I feel as though you've left me, and that I'm all alone,
Deserted and lonely, in this Godforsaken country,
As the fighting rages on, I cover my head and cry,
Wishing that I could be, in your arms tonight.

The battle rages on, bullets flying all around, the **** has really hit the fan,
And we're all going down... at last I find the courage, to peek out from the hole.
What I see, paralyses me with fear, I'm the last one left. This is the end.
I gather up my gun and ask the Lord for forgiveness, for the sins I have committed.
I'm sorry for having killed thee, or for causing thee offence.
I was just doing my job, for the country that I love.

I am just a soldier.
Who would do it all again.

WOW Hawky, you really need to get your poems published. You have an amazing talent, don't waste it.

Absolutely brilliant.

I am planning to, but I don't know how to go about creating a portfolio, or how to go about getting it published.

Thanks for taking the time to read it, though. I'm glad you enjoyed it

Look up in your yellow pages for "Literary agents" and maybe give them a phone call. They will obviously want a sample of your work neatly typed out.

Go for it mate, you've got a brilliant talent.

You could try doing it through one of the Veterans group for a cut of any profits

A good thing to do is to find the book Poet's Market, its published annually and it is providing with all information you need to publish your poems. You can find it at libraries and book stores.

You are very talented so try to publish your work

This is another beauty. I tend to agree with Opa Brit. You should have them published...
