Some will never understand

Standard

Some will never understand…

You picked up a rifle for a cause

Or laid it down to give a hand

A moment, a struggle, a pause

Yet, hesitate or not, you chose

To walk a path towards danger

Not always knowing who are foes

Touching the breadth of anger

And mercy’s width spreads wide

You stand tall through pain’s brand

Dried tears, your strength belied

Some will never understand…
