I'm a high school student.
I'm a person.
I'm an uncle to three.
Look at this, I don't seem different to me!
A son to two...
A brother to two...
A soldier for my country...
Is that so odd to you?
Why so mad; this is my dream.
Black and gold military life for me...
You were so angry I joined at seventeen.
I'm sorry Dad, my urge to grow up was so keen.
Stop you say? It is already too late.
I'm ready and fully accept what may be my fate.
I'm a soldier now.
One day Dad, people will look up and say to their sons, "Dreams do come true, and that man proved how."
