A Soldier Like Me

Fighting in wars

Having each others back

With no open doors

With nothing to lack.


Crawling on the ground.


Looking for safety

With a lot of sounds

That's going on lately.



Bam!Went the gun


Looking so scared


Praying to the Son


That he only cared.


Thinking about your family

Praying that they are okay

Thinking very carefully

While you are making your way.



"We can do this!"


Cried another guy,

" We are not dismissed

Until one of us gets shot."


Let's do team work
I know that will get us through

Let's not go berserk,

Before we end up blue.



This war is over


Hip... Hip... Hooray!

Now I am ready to go home


To share this parade.



Knock, Knock, Knock


I bam on the door.


It begins to unlock


As I count to four.


Kids jumping up and down

Glad that I am home

No one showed a frown
Because everyone had someone to hold.


People think it's easy


But it ain't

Cause a soldier like me


Don't ever say can't.
