After the War

There is one who stayed here after the war

behind enemy lines, walking scorched earth

wearing the stars as a suit of armor

and searching for the bombs that were dropped

All that’s left are the remnants

lying half buried in these wildlands

with still so many stories to tell

but no one alive to listen

So they whisper to the sky above

and wait for the world to bury them
