Poem by a Soldier

By Abhinav School

If I die in a war zone
Box me up and send me home.
Put my medals on my chest
Tell my mom I did my best.
Tell my dad not to bow,
He won’t get tensed now,
Tell my brother to study perfectly,
Keys of my bike will be his permanently
Tell my sister not to be upset.
Her brother will not rise after this sunset.
Tell my love not to cry
Because I’m a soldier born to die
For the Nation’s sake.– Chaitali Karkera
