Achilles and Patroclus

Eternal love, 

far greater than eternal glory.

Their love,

burns brighter than any story.

Two soldiers in war,

brothers in arms in the light,

lovers at night.

Hidden love,

Forbidden love,

until the recent months.

But by then it was too late,

for one has passed on.

Struck down by war,

on forigen soil never to see home again.

Revenge was seeked by the living,

until the living was also passed. 

On his dying breath he asked,

to be buried with his only love.

But even this was to big of a request, 

for the commander in chief.

Until society changed in 2010,

and said men can love men and women can love women,

for love is eternal and beautiful for all thoses who love.

This poem is about: 
My country
