My brother the soilder

My brother the soilder

my brother the soilder loves his country.
my brother the soilder is dedicated to protect it.
my brother the soilder is a hero in my eyes.

my brother the soilder loves me.
my brother the soilder cares.
my brother the soilder looks out for me.

my brother the soilder would give anything for me.
my brother the soilder cheers me up when i'm down.
my brother the soilder can turn my frown upside down.

But why does my brother,
have to risk his life,
just to save those who are scared to fight?

Why does he have to be a hero?

Why does can't everyone be a hero in this world?

Why can't everyone give a little to protect themselves and others?

Why can't we all work together, just like the soilders have to do,
otherwise we all die

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
