The Battlefront

The battle is real. Which side do you choose?

Boom! Boom! The cannons echo; around you lays the gore,
Carnage left by countless battles in this eternal war.
All who have ever lived, have been enlisted in this fight—
The fight of good and evil, the fight of wrong and right.

For what you choose will chart your course for all eternity.

I do always remember Him!
