" WE ARE WAR VETERANS , WE FIGHT " Featured

Look ye us straight in the eye , daughters and dear sons !

We are those that rocked your cradles with our guns ,

Keeping your wails in our hearts we stormed the crests  ,

Defending you we took the enemy's shots at our chests .

We are War Veterans , We fight yes , for our dear State ,

We do not care about nights or days , nor a rainy spate .

We pay the price of your freedom with our very lives ,

We keep you safe at home and wander the battle hives .

Unsure whether we shall see the Sun the next morn ;

We are War Veterans , We fight for the rights of a human !

Alas , We do pray when we grow old we die as heroes ...

What we do for you sons and daughters , only a martyr does .

And pledged to serve our country shall we fight till end ,

It doesn't matter whether you respect the blood spent ...
