Unless You’ve Been a Soldier

'Unless you've been a Soldier

Unless you’ve been a soldier,
You just won’t understand.
The things that we have seen and done,
in the service of our land.

We have trained to live in combat,
To cope with awful sights,
That shouldn’t be seen by anyone
And keep you awake at nights.

We don’t discuss the wounds we have,
To the body or the mind.
We just put our hurts behind us,
And turn our memories to blind.

We are proud we served our country,
And remember those we lost.
For the freedom that you have today,
They paid an awful cost.
