A Soldier's Burden

Take up the Soldier's Burden

Your country needs your soul

Sent to dark doors to serve

Fight a savage war of terror and profit

Politicians giving speech's while terror runs in your veins

Take up the Soldier's Burden

Defend your country with your life

Freedom defended by fearless armies

Serving with pride, heavy with their burden

Years of wisdom gained in a moment

Not serving for profit but for a call

Take up the Soldiers Burden

Sons and daughters going off to war

Their peers becoming captives in enemy camps

Bullets piercing flesh, blood pouring from the wound

A friends feeble movements as they lay dying

Childish humor as a game of football is played

A cry as a family sees their soldier coming home alive

Take up the Soldier's Burden
