A Soldier's Mind


A Soldier's Mind

Give me some recognition,

or atleast give me the credit for understanding

I escaped the fortress before and I can do it again

just believe in me, please

I held my head up high, fist clenched towards the sky

I sought out the pictures that the clouds dance before my eyes

trust in the instinct of fingerprints that trace my face

and sidewalk cracks will always grow roses

glue me to the ground with monotony but watch me rise up further

Broke own the crown and scattered the chess pieces around

I'm going to war with mine own self

and as I march forth, steady like the sails on the shifting ocean

I know that I am no longer
