Poems About War and Warriors
The Higher Place
by Joan Estelle High
The warriors have left us now for the "Higher
As some brave warriors often times are apt to do.
They are standing now in the presence of God's face.
As their life's work and all their deeds pass in review.
The Ancients called this soldier's place, "Odin's Hall".
For Valhalla was a Norseman's resting place of fame.
A special great hall of immortality with its spirals tall.
It was reserved for them who were in the battle slain.
So these strongmen of valor from every age and time,
Have one thing in common, they always gave their all.
Brave warriors, whose lives often taken in their prime.
Now can celebrate together as they stand in Odin's Hall.
While the courageous others who survived the battles fray.
But who with willing spirits they had also proved their worth.
Most were the quiet heroes who lived to work another day.
Are also invited when they have served their time on Earth.
God always has a need for warriors, men both brave and true.
To battle against the force of evil and stand for what is right.
After he has seen their courage and knows what they can do.
He sends them to this special place, that's safe within His light.
God is gathering up his army, lead by the Angels from on high.
He is forming His battalions, getting His army firm in place.
He is preparing for that great and mighty day of reckoning,
When old Satan 's bill comes due, for messing with our race.
When I look around the world today,
Song playing is " 12th.Warrior "
