It's All for Them

It's All for Them

He is a soldier poised with pride

A warrior who stands tall

A man with the weight

Of the world upon his shoulders

Under his facade

Which changes his name from

Man to Soldier

He is just a man trying to survive

He lives with the pain in his heart

With the blood upon his hands

That will never wash off

He hears the pleas

Of those lives he takes

He kills for the ones he loves

For his family

Yet he looks into their eyes

As they shy away

They fear him

Because he hides his demons away

Yet if he let them look upon them

His demons would be unleashed

And they'd run, far far away

So every day

He changes from struggling Man

To proud Soldier

Hoping that someday they understand

It is all for them.
