Commmited to our cause
A kindled empathy yet burning strong
Resolutely staring death in the face everyday
Holding the line at the front line.
This is no ordinary war
Nor the battlefield a familiar kind
The barely visible hostiles close in from all directions
Every front is a front line.
Where do they come from?
For whom do these adversaries fight?
Damning or turning our own with a single touch
They must not breach the front line.
Civilians are caught in the cross fire
The ground laced with mines of controversy and ignorance
Stay low, stay safe
Let's respect the sacrifices-- the sacrifices at the front line.
Say them a prayer
Toss them a coin or two
Salute to the vanguards
The ones at the front line.
