    while waking up early morning
    maybe oh five hundred hours
    do you think of the possibilities?

    that one day you may have someone
    trapped in between crosshairs
    waiting to
    (send them to hell, that's what you're taught)
    pull, send a clap that collapses a father/
    a mother/ maybe a little boy age 12/
    into the hands of a grave
    that has made your bed too?

    while waking up in the morning
    slave to ignorance
    bastard son to patriotism
    (if sam is your uncle who's your father?)
    do you think that on that day you can be placed
    on a geographical chessboard
    to serve as a pawn for another
    man's sick game?

    do you KNOW what you're fighting for
    or being fueled by what you're TOLD
    hearsay has killed many men
    and women

    while waking up in the morning
    in the middle of the night
    shaking/sweating/
    still hearing bullets whizzing
    by your future/ bombs
    blasting away at your sanity
    nightmares that rape you
    nightly and no one can stop
    the violation/

    is it all worth it in the morning?

    bravo!!!!

    your words are so true...knowing people who have been in this situation, reading these words was like hearing echoes of their voices asking themselves these same questions.....

    all men and women who are callled to war are pawns in anothers sick games....while the one who puts them in the line of fire sits safely at home and counts the death toll...
