Poem of the Hour


An Old Soldier's Eyes
Author: Shiloh

Well, I'm an old soldier,
and I'm sittin' right here.
You wanna look in my eyes?
Why, just buy me a beer.

I'll sit here and stare back,
as you search for my pain,
(as if you could see it...)
but I won't explain.

You think that you know
what you're playin' with here.
You can't see deep enough
to see all the fear.

Do you really want to,
can you handle the load,
of the things in my eyes
that have made me so old?

They say an old soldier
has eyes older than time.
Tell me what you see
when you look into mine.

The innocent child,
as he picks up that gun?
The fright in his face
with nowhere to run?

When bodies were mangled
and minds just shut down,-
can you see all of that?
You're beginning to frown...

Maybe, just maybe,
you don't like what you see.
And if that's the case,
why, that's good news to me.

'Cause there just ain't no reason
for killin' no more...
it's never solved much,
now, or before.

It's all sort of crazy,
this thousand-yard stare,-
and now everyone wants
to see it somewhere.

That way they can tell folks
they know how it lies,
'cause they saw an old soldier,
and they looked in his eyes.
