Hearts

The men and women

Who fight for a freedom

Don’t have armour

Or steel hearts

Preventing flying bullets

From tearing them apart

Military women and men

Fighting for your freedom

Filled with turmoil and emotion

For comrades who have fallen

For non combatants dying

Wearing their uniform with pride

Remembering those who’ve died

In the service of their country

They are prepared to die

They are not just uniforms

They are people like you and me

Who don’t have steel hearts

They care and cry

At what they do and see
