The badge had me running, away from the frey.I did'nt stop to see the blood mixed with the sod,

that which was changing the color of the earth I used to walk upon.

But the badge it was pinned upon me, as unnatural death hit me head on.

And in my mind it said 'coward' and still I ran forward, when something also said,

that the meaning of bravery is to keep on living, in a space where red flags don't add pride,

through white and blue. And when I couldn't run any longer, I stopped, not turning back.

And I began to walk again, meeting my fate upon a certain and uncertain path.
