Shakespearean Sonnet
I see you stand about to go to war.
Before you go there is much you should know.
A part of you will always want some more.
War makes good men do things I cannot show.
Your speed and strength won't save you from a mine.
Mines don't discriminate based on your faith.
From here on out you'll walk a fine, fine line.
And I wish not to see you as a wraith.
But now is your time, and you must be brave.
I've done this too and so I know your fear.
The end to this fear is all that you crave.
Be silent my son, and lend me your ear.
Before you go, this should be said out loud:
No matter what you do, I will be proud.
