A  SOLDIER
 


I was one of those that others did not dare to be
I went where others feared to go
And did what others failed to do

I asked nothing from those who gave nothing
And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal

 loneliness ...Should I fail

I have seen the face of terror
Felt the sting of fear

And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love


I have cried, pained and hoped

But most of all I have lived times

That others would say are best forgotten


At least now today

I am able to say

That I am proud of what I was

...A SOLDIER
