Beyond Borders

Weapons on my shoulders,
Claim lives, enemy or otherwise;
High above those boulders,
A war shall rise.

My fate shall be decided,
Among men who believe,
That peace is one-sided;
Victory they’d certainly achieve.

Those men on the other side,
Took an oath; allegiance they swore,
Defend their land; do it with pride,
Just like what I have signed for.

So I ask those who support war,
Are we not all brothers and sisters?
Should our love not soar
Beyond those lines we call borders?
