I have made some bad mistakes
yet some how I know.
That my best outweighed my worste
quite some time ago.
I have my moments I'll admit
at times I want to disagree.
Yet it is not these moments
that makes me who I choose to be
I always try to do my best
though at times I may fall short.
most my goals I have reached
when times get tough I don't abort.
this is what defines me best
makes me who I am today.
when things are at thier very worst
I refuse to walk away.
They say that i'm a stuborn man
I chose to say I'm driven.
But I could never turn my back
on this blessing I've been given.
I live by values bleed for love
and fight for my beliefs.
I feel no physical injury
yet I'm devistaded by emotional grief
these are a small part of who I am
honor, integrity, and personal courage
the reason why men like me chose to stand.
I am a soldier, a father, and husband
I leave my family for you.
because I believe in the goodness of man
and I'll always fight for the right and the true.
I stand for the colors bleed for my country
I'd die for the men by my side.
I'm an american soldier, I'm proud to be
out here along for the ride.
