'It's lacking the one thing that keeps us alive. It's lacking people. Stupid, oridinairy, brilliant people!'

I can't imagine running
toward arms of fire,
blood pounding in my ears.

Nor can I even think
of going forth --
with so much bravery,
and the possibility
of certain death.

All of which
of those above,
would be all too much
for one like me.

Even so,
I cannot doubt
the bravery
he hath,
On that very day.

The author's comments:
My cousin was serving in Afghanistan a little while ago (and was killed), and it just made me think about how brave he was on that day and how much courage it must take to do what he did. This one is for you, Aaron.
