To the men who fell for others

To the men who fell for others,
You rose in our eyes each day.
The sacrifices made by you,
Shall not go forgotten from today.

Today the eyes open wide,
Today the anger rises,
Today of all days I did wake,
From my oblivious sleep.

I stand ashamed for not have I
Contributed to this motherland.
No longer blindly shall I turn
My face away from problems on the rise.

Of my actions I am not sure,
Of the pride I feel for you I am,
Lest you feel forgetten, be rest assured,
We will redeem you.
We will redeem you.

posting a comment after a long time.... very well written stuff and i dont know if it wasnt supposed to but it doesnt evoke me emotionally.... still a good tribute to all those who die not for themselves but for a greater cause that they believe in.

the way u project it unleashes your perspectives...... that of a girls tribute to real heroes.... if a an wrote something simliar his treatment would have been different - i can sight examples. such writings by men delve more into the glorification rather than the emotional content . in a nutshell the female tribute usually has more emotional content and expressive writing when it comes to tributes ..... romanticisation

If only one would actually do something.
Redemption never functions fully.
