Words of a Soldier

I was that which others did not want to be.

I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing.

And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness....should I fail.

I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love.

I have cried, pained and hoped....but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.

At least someday, I will be able to say that I was proud of what i was .......
