A Soldiers Prayer – The Long Road

by Mormonboy (Yachats, Oregon)

You said you would always be there

That you would always have my back,
Now I know that leadership
Is something that you lack.
Every night and day
I try to hide the scars,
I knew if mom saw them
I would be looking at the stars.
I try to make the right decision
For fear I will explode,
But instead I made the wrong choice
and I took it down the long road.
