Capture

My heart  was nearly crushed when I saw the image ISIS posted of a beheaded woman, claiming it was Rehana. So I found this poem I would like to dedicate to all the brave fighters in Kobani. This poem is particularly for all the women fighters on the front. We stand beside you in solidarity. A crime against one man is a crime against mankind, and I support #TeamMankind.

In Solidarity We Stand

In Solidarity We Stand Against The Islamic State

Invisible Soldier

Sarge Lintecum

You can tell her by the twinkle in her eye,
At parades when the flag marches by.
She served our country and she served it very well.
Some have even served a tour or two in Hell.

She suffered hardship and never ceased to care.
It gave us strength just to know that she was there.
She was a leader, you could tell by the rank she wore,
But she became the invisible soldier after the war.

She can march, she can fly, and she can sail.
She proved that bravery isn’t exclusive of the male.
She did every job she was asked and more,
But she became the invisible soldier after the war.

Now, it is finally time to right a wrong.
Honour our sister soldier; hear her song.
It’s very clear that she’s a patriot to the core.
Don’t let her be the invisible soldier anymore.
