Look Into Their Eyes

By 25th August 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

when you look in a soldiers eyes, you see into their souls,
you see the horrors the ones they never told.
you say they are murderers, killers you see
its not that clear and simple, the things they do to help others be free.

many innocents have lost their lives…soldiers, they were some
all just to make sure the job gets done.
they look into their brothers eyes,
just as they hold them while they die.

People wonder why they fight,
why they choose to risk their lives.
ask a soldier this question, the answers in their eyes,
why they’ll always fight for freedom and never asking why.

many times they’ll fall alone,
look into their eyes,
the tears they try to hide
the windows into their soul
