Semper Fi, my friends
I never wanted this, I never planned
to hold the fates of other people in my hand.
This way was just for me; my life, my needs
a distant childhood and my adult years
I wanted someone else to choose my path
Yet even here where lives are forged anew,
At first my only thoughts were God, why me?
We came through dirt and blood and death and loss,
I thought perhaps, at last, the war was done;
But this it; I find I've reached my end.
