I Am - Poem by Anthony Eccles

I am a one man army,
I am the best that i can be,
I dont take from the land that was given to us,
I let the land take what it needs from me,

I find comfort in those around me,
I seek love from my friends and myself,
I show respect to elders in my family,
I would rather have knowlege over priceless wealth,

I try to find good in all the wrong places,
I dont choose the fight the fight chooses me,
So i can either win this war of love and claim victory,
Or brush it past me and admit defeat.

    nobody wins a war because it will never end
    but ceasefire and everybody go home to plan the next one.
