Soldiers - Poem by TPAC Alexander Coppedge

Officers in defense for others due right,
watching us adults instructors' might,
led by shepherds sheep to God's light.

Fighters ready beat a drum hit to stand,
cause in just battles protectors a feat,
challenging threat cities of the world.

Army combative of unjust laws free will,
nourish a righteous image angels to see,
ending wickedness to flee rightful acts.

Souls cut no special honor tribute place,
rushing to face jobs perform heroes task,
join pals grace of a better dream seed.

Soldiers waiting all being stone statues,
armed in weaponry each paused for call,
found servants to God boulders a hall.

Storms rages best set death weapons,
aids peace to come rest by destruction,
fulfilling arms a real test intent sure won.

Love total ripeness by successful goals,
posted guardsmen to do God's fairness,
recklessness souls in fight do new fates.

Sparkles be dock exact there agreed,
placed elders serve a good stored stock,
stated each a rock to seed God's laws.
