Mirror mirror 

Mirror mirror do we see…
“For some freedom is gained. For some freedom is lost to a bodiless being.” 
The poor sent to war 
minds and souls 

abandoned 

captured

sold

sacrificed

for spoil. 

Met on foreign lands, 

an enemy,

bodily destroyed 

but 

his being 

brought home from battle, 

tucked away in badges and bags 

growing 

scars of a young solider bleed for freedom

for a freedom lost

to dark tales of war 

never seen 

never spoken.
