(December 24, 2012)
I see war everywhere, in my mind it does scare.
Bodies lying here and there,
who are they? Do people care?
I’ve seen my share of a lot.
But I’ll never get out of my mind,
that one solitary shot.
After that, the rifle had splendor;
for when it was done, I felt like I’d gone through a blender.
I was a warrior, that’s all I knew.
Or at least I thought so, until I met you.
Suddenly the walls began to crumble,
and I knew life was worth a rumble.
I began to beat, on my own,
because of something that I had never known.
You showed my wounded warrior heart,
that there is no bad time for a new start.
