The Voices- inspired by The Voice by Thomas Hardy

So I got this idea from the lovely PostADay suggestions for poetry/writing bloggers. YAY! To save you the trouble, the actual prompts are here.

1000 souls, your voices echo endlessly,
Lamenting that change is cruel and cold,
Childish joys indulged faithlessly in the past-
When, fresh-faced, you needn’t care.

While dreams were realized and dashed, mothers waited,
Lonely figures passing the mantle onwards,
Waiting to greet their pride, persevering despite the nay-sayers’ cries,

Even in the apron she bade him farewell.

Their pride carried on the shoulders of soldiers,

The funeral match travels on the wind,
Sealed in a box nailed shut,
Never to be seen, or even heard ever again.

I watch, she bravely welcomes her son,
Tears stream down but she is not ashamed.
A 1000 voices crying:
“Where is your pride now?”
