Poem submission

This poem was written by Zach Roberts, a junior at Lincoln County High School, and was submitted by Mike Martin, substitute teacher.

Retreat

I have to write a poem, and I don’t know what to write about. I’ll write about WW I for a matter of fact.

As I lay here in the trench, I look up at the sky and wish if one of these bullets was to hit me today. God please take me straight away.

Once, a grenade landed at my feet. I looked back at my fleet and yelled, “retreat”.

Here I am walking into no man’s land, with a tank behind me I still don’t feel like a man. This place is wasting my time, I can feel my life slipping out of my hands.

As I lay my head down and try to sleep, I hear footsteps approaching me.  I get up to see, there’s a whole lot of nothing between you and me.

I didn’t think I could write a poem, but now I can see I’d rather be doing this than crawling on my hands and knees.
