Onward We March

Heads held high.
Fear in our hearts.
Steadily we continue.
Onward we march.

We do it for families.
We do it for friends.
Knowing we might die.
Onward we march.

Finding strength in each other.
Receiving love from home.
Looking always forward.
Onward we march.

Helping the injured.
Honoring the dead.
Hoping soon it will end.
Onward we march.

We fight during the day.
We continue at night,
Seeing nameless faces flashing by, but
Onward we march.

We fight for freedom.
We fight for peace.
We pray for forgiveness, then
Onward we march.

It was nearing Veteran's Day when I wrote this, and I'd like to dedicate to our service men and women, past, present, and future. However, it applies to each of us. We all face hardships that we must encounter, and so I'd like to encourage you all to continue to march onward.
