SOLDIER (1stDraft-unedited)


A soldier may represent their nation with pride.

To protect, and defend the country that they reside.

This fight may occur outside their borders

They are simply following the issued orders

When danger is present on the battle field

It is the soldier next to them that they will shield

Giving up their life for the soldiers who naturally would do the same

Something difficult for those at home to sustain

Trading their life for those in the combat zone

Instead of a concern for those back home

Do not let this cause you to easily confuse

Without a consideration to this in other views

If a different situation resulted in their survival

Others demise may have contributed to their arrival

Just remember to use this thought

Before judging actions by those who fought.
