Courage


Courage, we lack the faith in our troops
Watching what others say what they do,
Courage to fight for our freedom, to leave
Leave behind family and friends to protect them,
This courage we seek to find in ourselves
Found in the ones fighting, they fight with hope
Out there alone as the days, months, years pass
Families bow their heads with heavy hearts
To the troops they love to the friends they lost,
The courage to stay strong,
Holding onto another day
Courage walks along the side of them
As fear may bleed through to them
As a thank you to the fallen
Thank you to the ones holding together
Young men and women living
For our country
For us
