Run of the River Army

Created by: Toby Heward

By Toby HewardPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

A vibrant colored soldier treks upon his trail,

to reach his destination shrouded in memories veil.

He took the path once a long time ago,

in order to have a chance to prosper and grow.

Upon finishing his first mission he decided to return,

with belly so full; he had plenty to burn.

Pushing ahead with his platoon in tow,

following their memories to where they must go.

Battling beasts and nature alike,

never stopping on this arduous hike.

Climbing up mountains and rising after falls,

marching along as they finish their calls.

Destination in sight they file off into pairs,

laying the foundation for their soon to be heirs.
