Fallen Soldiers

Fallen Soldiers

written by: Brian Wayne Smith



Army cries

Battle wounds

Soldiers die

Where are the tombs?

Why fight?

Freedom hide

Wave the flag

Stars & Stripes

Too many years

When will it end?

Families’ cries

“Hate this war”

“Support our Troops”

“Bring them home”

People Spoken

Not enough

Families’ loss

Children suffer

Babies’ steps

Never seen

Fallen Soldiers

What does it mean?

Widows made

Fallen Soldiers

Mothers missed

Fallen Soldiers

Tears flow

Fallen Soldiers

Life stopped,


College money

Sign the line

Our children

Government Issued

Fallen Soldiers

Starts Again

Published author that writes free verse, prose, poetry, research and most importantly from the heart. My writing has more of an urban point of view and style. Simply because I am an African American that have seen and experienced things that people of other cultures may never see. Though I'm hoping to share reading material that we all could respect and continue to be open minded about.

I'm a husband, father, business owner of BRAYNE, LLC, a clothing company that promotes positivity by way of fashion, a writer, a student and an electronic engineering test technician. Life is busy but I'm striving to live my dreams with my great family that I love deeply. There are times when I feel like a failure. Then I look at how many times I've fallen just to dust myself off and continue running the race. Now I can look around at my life and see that my "failures" were just locked doors that God wasn't ready to open yet.
