A Soldier's Heart

I am a soldier who has sworn
To serve and defend my country
To protect the lives of others
As well as their right to be free

I am proud of everything I do
And feel that my life is worth
The security of my loved ones
And the goal of peace on earth

I believe that all human kind
Should have a common liberty
The ability to live without fear
Under the evil hand of tyranny

I am trying to end the threat
Of terrorism in my home land
As well as that of my neighbors
Who may need a helping hand

I keep what I am feeling inside
The pain, anger, grief and fear
My own safety and that of others
Depends on a mind that's clear

I pray for courage and honor
To help me do what is right
For the strength and the will
To see me through this fight

I hope to have the support
Of the people I'm fighting for
Their prayers to send me off
And their welcome after war
