Leave

The green recruits are weathered now
emboldened by the brawl
they weren’t informed but know somehow
tomorrow comes the fall

a brisker breeze begins to blow
as daylight slowly wanes
these telling omens tend to show
how little time remains

resplendent in their vibrant gear
they feel no fear at all
relieved to leave their torment here
tomorrow comes the fall.

I must say that you always have an exceptional subject for your compositions!

"resplendent in their vibrant gear

I liked these lines the most!

It's that much more scary when you know it's happening and you can do nothing. (on any subject, I suppose, depending on where you stand)

Amazing write.

It's coming for sure and I know the feeling...I feel like leaving myself! A beautiful piece of work!
