Sitting here numb
my thoughts are frozen in time.
Wondering, how did I get here?
Let me rewind.
Retracing my steps,
revisiting each decision I’ve made,
subsequently sitting here pondering;
“For a better life, would I trade?”
The cost of Freedom is priceless
no more conforming to the norm.
My life is now my own
no longer will they bring me harm.
To be a prisoner of an institution
filled with of lies and deceit,
those wearing the uniform of top brass
from our pockets they cheat.
As a proud American
it was an honor to have served,
defending our country,
“a Free Nation” is what we deserve.
I did not go along - to get along,
yet I stand behind my conviction,
which is remaining fully committed to the LORD,
his word and his powerful intervention!
