The Chosen Ones

You were there when I was trekking at high mountains,

You were there when I was camping in the desert,

You were there when I was enjoying on the beach,

You were there when floods & earthquakes strike,

You were there guarding the Land, Sea & Air.


You are the sons & daughters, brothers & sisters,

You are the ones who leave their families to save ours,

You are the best amidst bests of men & women,

You miss the Diwali, Eid or Christmas celebrations at home,

But your happiness to serve the nation surpasses it all.


You leave home as young cadets and return as Officers,

Braving the enemy lines and the internal conflicts,

You pledge to return victorious or wrapped in the Tricolors,

Salute to all the soldiers guarding our nation,

You are the true heroes – The Chosen Ones! join-indian-defence-forces

    Such a wonderful poem on the men and women in uniform who do so much for our country. I speak from personal experience because I am an Army brat as well as an Army wife. I have always loved being a member of the Armed Forces, which is a privilege and a duty. Thank you for writing a poem so apt. #DeepTiesReads #MyFriendAlexa

    Soldiers usually win the battles and generals get the credit for them. They are the real hero

      Sadly, it happens too often. Time we start respecting our soldiers.
