Symbolic... It has various meanings...

------------

As a spec of dust falls to the ground, the tens of thousands march onward stomping it further towards the earth below with every downward thrust of their boot. The motion of their legs: up, down, up, down; a uniform stride of confidence in the cold winter. They pay no mind to the gallant spec they crush to the ground; they stay the course. Over hills, through valleys, across rivers of excellence they march in search of their foe; they will never find their adversary. He is not where they expect, but where they least expect. They keep on, unchanged by the courageous spec of dust in which they so avidly and with haste send to its doom. The world around them changes though; winters come and autumn falls with leaves of gold as her signature. They pay no notice. The years come and soon fade away and all the world is forever changed, but they are lost in themselves for good; lost in the winter of a time long forgotten. And their lives will remain cold; and their cause all for naught. And the specs of dust continue to fall to the ground, until at last their voice should be heard.

It seems to me there is an historical aspect, and a modern aspect. Very nice indeed.

Thank You.

You can take a historical or a modern aspect in looking at it... It can really be applied to any conflict, from literal war to a battle of opposing views, I think.
