Lone

A light in the dark

One amongst many

Always hitting the mark

Failure felt plenty

 

But failure is wrong

For the streak of blue

It is never long

Before everyone knew

 

A cry of hate echoes loud

The news hears and writes their report

Anger in the crowd

And yet they never ask for a retort

 

And yet we are the few

We are the proud

we are nothing new

and yet judgement seems to overcrowd

 

A bad shot

Or at least so they say

You want to speak up but are not

at liberty to speat or you were not there that day

 

A family at home

A soldier in blue

He fights for his town, his own

and yet hundreds of names he will acrue

 

The line is thin

Fading in the wqaves of injustice

Everyone judges but no one is willing to do the same

Safety is the price we pay

For we are the few who protect the many

We are the blue

We are true

 

We are alone

 

Lone
