Winning Determination

By 21st April 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

I was on patrol in foreign lands, walking in the heat and on desert sands
We stopped our vehicles, to set up a VCP, as I stood there on guard, knowing the enemy could see me
We checked the vehicles as they passed, then all of a sudden that an earth shaking blast
I was on my back when I opened my eyes, I was looking up to the light blue sky
Before I knew it my team approached me, doing their best to reassure me
All went dark but I heard a deafening noise, opened my eyes, I was now under the care, of Chinook’s medical boys
I awoke in hospital in a nice clean bed, I’ll never forget what the doctor said
We saved you arms but you’ve lost your legs, am sorry to report two of your friends are dead
I was flown home, my fight now begins, to walk again, am determined to win
