Soldier - Poem by william upton

A real man contains within himself
The positive source of the Universe.
The qualities that he muscles up affect
Those around him in a positive manner.
He does not apologize for unpopular opinions,
Nor does he cave in to peer pressure.
This man exhibits humility and grace.
He sticks his neck out when he senses injustice,
And tries to right the wrongs he knows are immoral.
Whenever the wind blows, he does not sway.
He stands.
He draws a line in the sand for his beliefs
And does not cross it.
He does not shy away from conflict.
His spirit cannot and will not be compromised.
He demonstrates recognition for the needs of the less fortunate.
In life's war zone
He is the man.
A soldier of life.
