An Honest Man... (poem) Copy

An honest man goes back for friends
Trapped underneath the rubble
He finds a hand, that reaches out
He answers the call for trouble

An honest man will fight though
His battle-time's not come
Even when the war's not his
Even when the victory's won

An honest man tells no lies
For he knows no truth is bound
And though sometimes it may hurt
When it does he'll be around

An honest man cares ever so
That he does whatever it takes
No matter the scars or damages done
No matter if his heart breaks

And he shall be rewarded
Not by gifts, or dollars, but a smile
An honest man, a simple man
Treasured for traveling that extra mile

When heavens gates have opened up
And most will know that's seldom
God will greet him personally
'For a life well lived friend, Welcome...

how it can be read as poem?

Thank you so much.....Vanhoo......:)

I think I understand where you are coming from...sometimes hearts are distant and we think we know each other but really don't know them at all... and our hearts are numb with hurting so much that we are excisting but not really living..and lose touch with the one that we cared for so deeply...we are strangers.....

Its too good poem but it missed one thing...... an honest man is a dear friend till he is not forced to be dishonest......... after that he is neither friend nor enemy but stranger forever.....
