BADGES



You cannot leave this place without getting a badge

Though it may be small, medium, or large

It is that symbol of the battle you so valiantly fought

The battle you never forgot.




The battle between sickness and health

Highlighting the various ravages your body has been dealt

The battle between life and death

A recurring story upon the earth.




The battle field is strewn with all kinds of matter

Blood and various fluids all flow freely after

However through all these the badge stays on

Through all these the badge stays strong.




At the end of the battle the badge is removed

You either walk out of the field or you are removed

All that remains is a memory of where the badge had been

A wish not to again go through what the eyes have seen.

    You either walk out of the field or you are removed" This could be likened to walking out f the hospital alive or being removed to the morgue. Beautiful!!!!!
