I’ll Make It Home

Taps echoes

In my mind

As bullets and bombs

Detonate by my side.
I signed up for this

Fight

So a Child May

Know what it is

To be free.
I’ve been called

A thousand horrible

Names

And have stared

Evil in the eye

While a little girl

Stands to my side

Looking terrified.

This is why I fight.
War it is hell

But we live in a

Fallen world

And sometimes

The price is war.
Taps echoes

In my mind

As do the promises

I made to those

Waiting for Me

Stateside.

“I’ll make it home.
War it is hell

But by his Grace

I survived.
