Am I A Soldier?


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2006 with permission of the Author.

I am a soldier but not in a war.
I've never shot a gun nor seen all the gore.
But I go into battle each and every day.
From my intended purpose, I shall not stray.
There are people who need me, this I know,
and from this experience I will grow.
If the truth be told, I'll say it first.
I need them more; it's them I thirst.
They don't always like what I have to do.
In time though, I think they'll gain a clue.
It does get tough, I will not lie.
Sometimes it's easy to just stop and cry.
Am I a soldier? Yes! You can call me that.
But you'll never see me in straight combat.
Those who know me call me by another.
What was that word? Oh yes, it was mother.
