Am I A Soldier?

©

Published: February 2006


I am a soldier but not in a war
I never shot a gun or 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? o'h yes, it was mother.
