Our Fallen

I received the poem and youtube link posted below today. I considered how yesterday was Memorial Day and all our soldiers and wounded throughout the world deserve to be honored and I felt Carlos Rojas is doing a good job here of honoring his friends. 

I also like Rojas' rhythm and style and feel the video really brings out his words. Rojas is not only lyrical, his delivery conveys his passion and that is what brings his work to life.

Please check below his lyrics for free downloads which for free, is more than worth it.

Check out the link to his youtube video where Rojas is in full regalia telling us his story. 

From Carlos Rojas Jr.(Lcpl Rojas) 
I am a U.S. Marine who wrote this last year after we lost 2 Marines in Morocco. 

Walking the streets of Africa,
these massacres occur so unexpected
the other night some Marines died,
never be resurrected
everyone's got a day & time,
nothing in life's perfected
their families cry,
these are the times we see life in perspective
the purpose for the hurting,
these modern day disasters
I wish that I could call it,
I feel no one would answer
prayers for the dead
but they live on
as we continue fighting
these are my brothers,
this is family, we stand as one united
for all Marines who witnessed death but just couldn't escape
may the Lord's angels give you peace, and guide you to his gates
