 Reflections of My Heart

One Tin Soldier

One Tin Soldier

The riches of this mountain
the buried treasure is our Freedom
We are hated so severely
because we are a free kingdom

We stand tall and proud
because of who we are
In the nation of nations
we are a shining star

An example we must be
joining hand with every brother
Taking the needed time
to just simply help each other

To take a blind eye
to any injustice
Not wanting to get involved
lends no credence

If your going to speak out
on what is not right
then you must  be willing
to fight the good fight

Protection is not a matter
of yours and my convenience
What our Military gives
is not a mere pittance

God Family and Country
we must always defend
Keep each other safe
take each brothers hand

Foe will dig to our very soul
wanting to know our wisdom
but when standing before them nude
the great secret will be our Faith and Freedom

Our Military risks the ultimate sacrifice
and oh the price we all pay
We watch a flagged draped coffin
as another Tin Soldier rides away

In Dedication
To Friends and Fellow Poets
One Tin Soldier
Crossed Rifles
