To Live or To Die For

by Aina P. Balagtas


There are battles in the greenest fields

and in the bluest seas;

corpses soak in bloods of their own–

to men of dignity and valor

they belong.


There are battles in the wildest forests

and in the most sacred skies;

destitute remains unidentified

noble souls soar to heaven

mightier than the mightiest eagles fly.


But, the toughest battles

are fought hard in a hell deep inside

by medal-less warriors defeated by rotten pride–

fatalities of truth–

buried alive.
