This is about the price any soldier could pay. Please be respectful when you r/r it.
(This is 22, no, 26, lines long, all about the price that a soldier pays to keep this country safe. I cried as I wrote it.)

Oh the cost I've paid
To keep this country free

Oh the cost I've paid
As I became someone I shouldn't be

Oh the cost I've paid
As my friends lay dying

Oh the cost I've paid
As I laid there bleeding

Oh the cost I've paid
As I remember what I did

Oh the cost I've paid
As I'm just a kid

Oh the cost I've paid
All to keep my brother safe

Oh the cost I've paid
Keep my medals in a safe

Oh the cost I've paid
As my eyes closed

Oh the cost I've paid
As I laid there, dead

Oh I paid the cost
I paid the cost, the cost of freedom


*This is dedicated to all of the men and women who serve in every branch of the Armed Forces, past/present/future, For Freedom does not come free. Your sacrifices will never be truly forgotten, even when time passes and memories fade away. You are Heroes All.*

(A young wolf cries, as he looks out the window, for the heroes who paid the ultimate price for freedom, their lives.)
