Soldiers

Hostile environment

Fighting for our lives

Wondering if this step will be our last

Matters of opinion

Nuclear threat

Clash of small minds

Speaking for the millions

Sitting in a room

With a panic button

While we are out here fighting

Our lives being lost

Fighting for ideals we don’t always agree with

For we believe in the flag

And what it represents

We stand for all people

Not just the few

This war we are in

Not fought afar

But in our backyard

Inside our schools

Inside the office

Inside our bodies

Hundreds taking a stand

Some on bended knee

Doing what they can

To shout intolerances

Draw attention to wrongs

Banding together

Taking it to the streets

Marching

United

In today’s hostile environment

A new soldier emerges
