Soldiers bravely take to the battlefield and fight

These young heroes battle day and night

While proudly proving love to their country and its truth

As mothers pray on their knees and brave every war too

Soldiers Tribute, Creative Writing

It was more like an epic scene from a surreal dream

Spreading its wings, it sang a song, as tears filled its eyes

Singing that freedom is bought with blood

Crystals filled my eyes too, singing that freedom is bought with blood


There was still more that the Eagle said, ’bout all the bloodshed

And every word churned and burned through the depths of my soul

Singing that freedom is bought with blood

Soldiers bravely take to the battlefield and fight

These young heroes battle day and night

While proudly proving love to their country and its truth

As mothers pray on their knees and brave every war too


The Eagle sang through crystal tears

Singing, make soldiers’ lives count by living right

And the Eagle spread its wings

Freedom became more sweet, as the Eagle spread its wings


The Eagle told me not to cry,

But live my life in truth

And take honor and love as my stand

With helpful hands

’Cause freedom is bought with brave men’s blood *(and, women’s too)!

So whenever all seems lost just remember each soldier’s high cost

(Their high cost)!

(High cost)!


Then, the Eagle’s wings fluttered gently

Brought me to my knees

Its pride so noble got me smiling in time

Its vow became mine

Because freedom is bought with blood always


Soldiers bravely take to the battlefield and fight

These young heroes battle day and night

Giving up their lives, each one

Through blood, sweat, and brave tears

They dismiss their own fears

Giving up their young years


The Eagle sang through crystal tears

Singing, make soldiers’ lives count by living right

And the Eagle spread its wings


The Eagle sang through crystal tears

Singing, make soldiers’ lives count by living right

And the Eagle spreads its wings

Eagles make a great metaphor for soldiers bravery. Nice poem.

It is true that True Freedom will come our way only by Jesus Christ. And, even now, we can be free, from within, when we have a close bond with our Lord, and Savior.

I do not know enough about worldly issues in order to get into politics, but I do know that our soldiers risk their lives out on the battlefield in a good conscience, and with bravery in their hearts.

I salute the U.S. Soldiers for their sacrifice, now, yesterday, and in the future to come.

Thank you for your interesting comment, and I am happy that you like my tribute to these American Heroes.

I was only an aircraft mechanic during the Vietnam War and had no injuries from it but when I look back on it I want to puke. There we young, mostly boys, were spilling our blood behind an act of treason for a nation who primarily wanted to extend America's dream of being the empire here mother, Great Britain, failed to accomplish without any moral reason. Then I looked at the nation's constitution and the actual history we are allow to read and found taking this land and every war against foreign nations including Mexico violated violated the supreme law.

To this day I have yet to see any freedom attained from any war's blood shed but I am now aware that true freedom, for those desiring it, WILL BE bought by a single man's bloodshed in the near future. May who is to be called the Christ hurry into his temple so we can experience peace for the first time in my 73 years.

Well said, Yancosky, although NO freedom has come from any war's blood.
