The Stress of Check Point

A drama was in the past

Then it came alive

A story told but with a countdown

With a heart of steel


One could bring her justice

As they fought a battle

Checkpoint!


We struggle mornings

Sleepless nights

Sounds and whispers

But no silence.


22 soon it was 12

Then suddenly you were at the front

It is a dream none

Understand even a pinch don’t


Checkpoint checkpoint

A story you may ever want to

Hear but just silence and more to be honest

And not so nostalgic


I may fail other wins but the blood flows

Don’t fear but let the knife

Stub you because the pain may

Distinguish.


A pain one may never forget

Checkpoint
