The Military Man

by Kaylee   May 13, 2006

Too much seen through cloudy eyes,
Of which I should never myself see.
Entwined sadness roping your heart.
I can not stop what continues to bleed.
—Hands frozen but blood red stained.

Too many prayers thrown to the Lord,
Of which I should never myself listen.
I, Myself remain an eager voice unheard.
But shaking hands dare not hold my own.
—Defenses built so heart can not tumble.

Too many secrets locked in an enchanted box,
Of which I should never myself hold the key.
For never should I pick the lock you have made.
I can not force you to reveal what you refuse.
—Weaken those lies you have been told.

Too many things I can not understand,
Yet the world you reside within makes sense.
What you consider to be a band of brothers,
Makes me break down when you have gone.
—But forever you remain a military man.
