Freedom, My Pride


War cries out
The battle rages
The smell of fear
Inside these cages

The enemy smiles
As men fall at my side
Tears flow in silent agony
As my brothers have died

Death all around
Rage rises inside
I swallow the pain
To fight once again

No time to ponder
Of the lives left behind
I must look ahead
To salvage my mind

Memories of home
Keep me alive
Fighting for my country
For freedom: my pride
