Martyrs of Shiloh

They come- touched

Simply because they’re called

No one else around them hears it

Because it’s a sacred whisper within

Because it is soundless- a feeling

In the same fashion as chills

But they’re fervor is dedication

They’ll know not any reservation   

Time has etched their names in place  

Beyond all human understanding

Borne forth to shoulder true grace

Unbeknown what cost will be paid

Still, unabashedly they’ve answered

As have all martyrs, in fields… of Shiloh
