Curtain

(NaPoWriMo14 Day 7)
Had I known what life held
I would make ready, always on guard
Afore my eyes made a flutter
Swimming blindly in blood and water
If I knew how the battle’d be won
I would make ready my weapon of war
Shield and armour gleaming in the light
When not favoured I speed my flight
If I knew where the line’s hottest
Ready and steady to the front
Forward to the line fighting for freedom
To survive, all foes must face
If I knew what life would hold
I would wait for it to unfold
Layer after layer no running to and fro
Taking each day like the gift it was
