The Diary of my Brother

Recommended Posts

This is my first try at apocalyptic type writing.

"The Diary of my Brother" 

Hope you enjoy and please leave some constructive criticism!

A small fire burns at his feet just large enough to provide light to see.

Vitaly lay down his SVD rifle next to his sleeping bag, grabbed a small brown book and lay down.

"Property of лейтена́нт Dmitry Orlov"

'Vitaly unfolds a small photograph stapled to the corner'

I once was a man of honor...

A man of love and passion, but now..

All is finished. We will never get back what we lost, and now we have to hold onto the things we love or we risk losing them too. 

Vitaly carefully shuts the diary, closes his eyes and whispers the same thing he has been saying since it began;

"In war, a man is just a soldier, he can be replaced by one of a billion soldiers

In love and family, a man is the only one, he cant be replaced

Through the eyes of war, the individual will be overseen

Through the eyes of love and family, the individual will not be overseen"

It has been 3 years since he left. Mother told me he would be ok, she said he would be safe.

We were on the phone with him when it happened. We heard the screams and the gunfire, then the phone crackled and I heard his voice.

"Look after our mother Vitaly, keep her safe. And remember little brother.. 

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."

This land I have ventured to is now in ruins much like my homeland. Once a mighty federation now just a feeding ground for the devils.

Everything I once loved is fading, soon to be lost. Unless the light is brought out of the shadows, the world will fall into darkness.

I know you are still out there and I swear on Lenin's name, I will find you.

My brother... I am the light.

This is beautiful bro - very well written, I got legitimately emotional - the music was just the icing on the cake. Plan on doing more?
