As Thoughts are Sentenced

Hostile words released. One word follows another, As thoughts are sentenced. Both hearts burned eternally In smoldering emotions. Repression by words Never polite; soon ignite. Insecurities. Formed in passive-aggressions. Time heals all wounds: don’t they say? Much could be spoken,

‘Over the Top’ ~ Battle of the Somme

The Battle of the Somme was considered one of the most devastating battles of World War One. The initial battle charge of the British/French and Allied forces into the ‘No Man’s Land’ battlefront started promptly at 7:30 am on the morning of July 1, 1916. This first offensive attempt by the Allies was preceded for as many as 5 days of artillery barrage of well-over a million munition shells into the front line and surrounding trench fortifications of the German troops prior to the 1st of July. The Battle of the Somme continued on for 141 consecutive days, resulting in immense loss of lives and debilitating injuries in the millions. This event was neither the beginning, nor the end of the war.
