I am a Soldier

I am a soldier.

I am a warrior.

I am far from home

fighting for something worth fighting for.

 Don’t send me here

and teach me to fight

then tell me I am

not fighting for the right.

 

War is ugly

war is dirty

but I am here to

keep my children free.

 

I am a soldier.

I am a warrior.

I am far from home

so you can enjoy your blessings more.

 

You don’t want to hear

the stories I have to tell

because I know there are places

on earth that reach the depths of hell.

 

I am no saint

I am just a man

and this cause of freedom

has made me what I am.

 

I am a soldier.

I am a warrior.

Fighting for your freedom.

Tell me, is that worth fighting for?
