The Black Granite Wall

by revrjm

I stand in solemn awe,

Staring at names Etched into this polished black Granite wall.

Too many names—

Cannot read them all, Nor can I contain myself. Tears begin to fall.

These men and women

Who left husband, wife, children alone To give their lives in a combat zone.

I stand in solemn awe.

My reflection’s on this black granite wall. A free man’s staring back at me,

Because 58,272 names

Are immortalized on this black granite wall.
