A Soldier Is A Guard Dog

PostAuthor: Nitroex700 » Sun Aug 21, 2016 8:12 am

Wrote this last night while talking to an old fauji friend about the predicament of our security forces in troubled areas.. First few of these lines occurred during the chat, rest I wrote afterwards. Hope you will like it:

*A Soldier Is A Guard Dog*

Soldiers are like guard dogs,
Necessary but expendable..
Countries are built on top of our ashes,
Yet our lives are cheaper than the guns we shoot & vehicles we drive...
Some people think we do it for money,
Ask them the price of their loved ones' lives...
Some say we use excess force,
Ask them how they would counter a terrorist...
They say we violate human rights,
Ask them who they would call when their houses are flooded!

Soldiers are like guard dogs,
We're remembered when we're dead, loved when you need us & forgotten when you don't!

Soldiers are sons, whose mothers sent them to die for yours.
Soldiers are brothers, who couldn't attend their sister's weddings so you could attend yours.
Soldiers are fathers, who didn't see their children being born..
Who were told so by delayed letters & satphone calls...
Soldiers are husbands, whose wives live in perpetual fear of their deaths.

Soldiers were boys, with dreams of their beloveds in their eyes..
Dreams they forgot, as they charged the enemy, straight through a minefield & strafing MG fire...

Soldiers are men who killed & died to win those few yards of lands,
So you could lose them on your political tables & stretch your chests wide.

Soldiers are men who fought with men unknown,
Without once asking, but nevertheless wondering..
Why did they need to die??!

Soldiers are humans who fought on places on earth,
A frozen river, flaming sun & sluggish swamp..
All because you forgot to draw some lines on a map..!

Soldiers were singers, whose hearts sang the songs of their country's freedom.
Soldiers were musicians, whose lips played martial music & hands, battle drums.
Soldiers were dancers, who danced to simple tunes in complete abandon.
Soldiers were artists, whose fingers drew pictures as well as they pulled the trigger of a machinegun.

Soldiers were drivers, that drove many men who would never again come.
Soldiers were cooks, who cooked the last meal before the battle begun.
Soldiers were teachers, that taught many to speak a common tongue.
Soldiers were doctors, who silently watched the last breath of many brothers in arms.

Soldiers were the daggers, watching over us silently from great heights.
Soldiers were the black cats drilling into the enemies' hearts, a fear dark as nights.
Soldiers were the dolphins who dived into the deep sounds & emerged in shallow bights.

Soldier are the guard dogs, true to the salt & warriors to the core.
Soldiers are people, like you and me, ready to sacrifice all they have, now & forever more.

I just expressed in poetry the general sentiments of a common security forces' officer posted in one of the disturbed areas of the country - if they don't act against anti national elements firmly, they are reprimanded for inaction. If they do handle them as demanded by the ground situation, they face enquiries for excessive use of force... Damned if they do, damned if they don't!
