Stay Strong

Tears falling
From a child's face
His body battered
His legs in a brace

Almost dead
Before they came
Now another child
Will take his place

What would happen
Only time would tell
His beautiful baby Sister
Was put through Hell

Nobody cared
Only she cried
With every beating
She fought to survive

So here we are
My Sister and me
We fought so hard
Now we're finally free

The pain we had
Is finally gone
Forgive, never forget
But, always stay strong

Why We Fight

You don't care
That we fight and die
You don't have to hear
Our wounded Soldiers Cry

As a Soldier
We'll give our lives
So people like you
May walk the line

You tell us we're no good
You hope we die
Soon enough you'll be thanking me
From the other side

It's people like you
Who gives us reason to fight
In most places, with your opinion
You'd have already died

So everytime you try
To hurt a Soldier's pride
Just remember it was us
Who gave you that right..

First Born

I got the news
yesterday afternoon
Nine months from now
the baby's due

She thinks I'm scared
I think she's right
My life is changing
but I see the future getting bright

I'm gonna be a dad
to a little boy or girl
I understand what my dad meant
When he said I was his only world

I can only hope
I'm as good as he
But at the same time
I pray my cihld doesn't end up like me

I've helped raise a few
In my 23 years
I've never been this nervous
I've never had this fear

Will I be a good father
they all tell me "yes"
Luckily I have a good mother
to help me with the rest
