Hearts overflowing with valour
Uniforms radiating honor
Your deeds have not been written
And to this day, forgotten
Brothers in arms, standing abreast
Protecting others without rest
Your sacrifice has not been regarded
And to this day, not rewarded
Burdened with broken bones and a seared soul
Bloody and battered, you still gazed at your goal
You’re on the wrong side of heaven
And to this day, none acknowledge your presence.
Lying wasted in sorrow and regret
Swallowed feelings of grief and contempt
Your heroics, no mere attempts at bravado
And to this day, you wander towards hell, solo.
