I just read a poem about bravery, Blast by Dee Phillips. The poem begins with a grenade hitting his team. The main character is Private Damien Williams who is brave. The best parts of the poem are the fighting, helping a hurt person and when they won the fight. The main character is scared and shaking when he saves a man from dying. I liked this poem because he helps his team out from the enemy. If you like poems about bravery or being scared then I recommend you read this poem.
