Soldiers

The world knows no peace
But some choose to defend us and
Our home from those that want chaos
The world's fate is fleeting
And they leave a mark quietly
Remember the heroes, past and present
Those who have kept us safe
For the happy laughter of children
And native steppes and fields
Taking risks that others would not
For all those that we love
Always in protection of the Motherland
They came to the service not for fame
And not for the sake of epaulettes
But to protect what they believe in
For loved ones and strangers alike
Ready to fight and die
For a clear peaceful sky

For Memorial Day. Wars are always tragic but in this world it is also necessary to acknowledge that conflict will always exist. And to those who put their lives on the line to defend our way of life with little recognition of the sacrifice I just wanted to say thank you. I may not agree with war but in some cases it is necessary to defend against threats or stop atrocities.
