My Life By Anonymous Who said my life was easy?Who said I was suppose to go to college?But instead I'm in denialWishing upon a starless nightI know It's out there some whereWill this life get easier!?Or will I lose everythingEverything I ever worked for!Things never changeI'm still hidingWorking hard and getting nothing in returnA uniform, a patch, and people who hate me?People who can't stand me?People who don't even know me?This is my lifeA United States soldier....A creeper of the nightA bearer of your freedom A reason you have the stars and stripesStop burning my colorsand spiting on my flag!I fight for that…You just voice your duncical opinionWhich I understand!I'll take this stand And listen to what you have to say anyway But before you make any rationalized comments Would you dare walk in my shoes, for just one day!? See what I see!Hear what I hear!And bear what I bear!before you comment on my life!Would you change your life??Like I did mineAnd fight for This Country's Liberty!
