A Soldier

Poem By Cory waters

I was that which others did not want to be.
I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness...should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror, felt the stinging cold of fear, and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love.
Atleast someday, I will be able to say, I was proof of what I was....A soldier

Remember that night we looked at the stars?
We looked at each other and opened our hearts.
We shared our secrets all the darkest ones.
Whos hearts weve hurt and whos broken ours.


So yeah ive lost it, Lost it all, my friends my family ive takin the fall.
Had messed with things that just werent me they gave me everything I could possibly need. It wasnt enough I needed it so I wasted my life but now I know.
You dont need everything with nothing to show.
I thought it impressed them but what I couldnt see...All that I had was misery and greed.


Ive never felt this urge before the urge to run away.
I never saw it coming until this very day.
I knew I had my ups and downs but never hit rock bottom, but then a few memorys hit I thought I had forgot them.
The more of them I go through the sadder that I get I thought about that girl I met just before i left.
