Moving Up In Rank From Soldier To A Man

Moving Up In Rank From Soldier To A Man

I find myself twiddling and rotating around time. Lost deep within my mind. Seeing him as if he were still here holding down time with one one thing one mind. Thinking of the soldiers who have gone together or separate to another place. These were fathers, sons, mothers , brothers, grandsons and more now the only thing on common indeed. They’ve become real men hidden behind uniform out to fight the fight And challenges ahead. Making it big as no one else can. This could be my father, uncle, grandparents or friend. That soldier will end up being the one who you find yourself missing most in the end when (she/he’s ) gone and taken with time.This soldier could be your cousin or friend. Whatever case may this soldier find peace and live out his journey not just a story to be told but a journey to share and never part with that holds forever true instead. The story that gave this soldier title of becoming a man. Making him a true hero in the end. Moving up in ranks from a soldier to a man.
