THE FINAL QUEST

In a dark and deserted alley

a homeless man is turning in

Between the walls of a cardboard box

thats been a home to Private Quin

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

He hides his scars behind fatique

a result of our country's gain

Alone he fights an endless battle

of his dignity and his pain

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

What is left for Private Quin

who's blood he proudly gave

Has his battle just begun

or does he lie within his grave

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

Is there no place for such a man

who unselfishly gave his all

Who fought beside other men

just to watch them fall

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

Will his war ever end

is it even worth fighting for

Has many died for nothings worth

Is there no peace any more

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

How does a soldier end up this way

in the streets of endless stares

Where no one ever really wins

where no one even cares

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

Its too late for Private Quin

but behind him theres many more

How much blood will it take

to open up your door

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

Somewhere in an unmarked grave

a soldier finally rests

As Private Quin surrendered life

and fights his final quest

~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~
