I AM A SOLDIER.....excerpt from 'Written in Blood'


Long hours with little pay
Respected by my peers hated by others
Passport full of distant land stamps
Letters from home close to my heart

Voices and nightmares converge into one
Politicians deciding where I lay my head
Fed clothed and sheltered
Home is but a sheltered dream

A Brotherhood in Arms 
Sacrificing my life to save yours
I protect your home and your land
You call me a murderer to my face

I gave my blood sweat and tears
Never asking for anything in return
Freedom given with a cost
I’m a soldier and this is my life
