A Hero's Sonnet

A Sonnet is a 14 line poem with the rhyme scheme ABABCDCDEFEFGG. It also must have a volta of turn. My rhyme in the F lines is a little off.

The enemy's nearing I draw my sword,
these are the men of the empire
I start counting, there are 2004
The situation seems quite dire
when our swords clash, the battle will begin
2004 against 201
we all fight for our kin.
They retreat the battles won!
Then they attack with faster blows
Our men are ready and keep fighting
I notice the hero of out foes,
he stabs me first but I kill him as I'm dying
A heroes act that brings me a heroes death
No time to take my final breath.
