The Immortal Resilience

Rookie (12-19 / ME MOMMA'S BELLY)

Two meanings Poem by The Immortal Resilience


A soldier of light
A soldier of truth

A soldier of hate
A soldier of abuse

Two sides and two meanings
One heart always beating

Because I am a soldier
I must stand tall

On the battlefront
that's where I learn my place
that's where I learn to take a stand.

I may weaken
I may fall

But I rise up again
and restrengthen my worn body

This hell that I help feed
This hell that I am in

Witnessing so much around me...

But I don't break
Saving my tears for when it's done
Because then I know
I know I've done all I could have done.
