Entry #8 Poetry: Soldier by B.J. Hamrick

Soldier
by B.J. Hamrick

My child, you were never meant to bear
This burden on your shoulders
You're much too small, you lack the strength
You're such a tiny soldier
And all this time you've marched along
Crying, "I'm strong too"
When I was here just waiting
To carry this cross for you
I've seen your tears, I've heard your prayers
I've been here all along
So now just place your splintered cross
Against My back -- I'm strong
Now see My tears, now hear My prayers
My child, they're all for you
For I have come to do the work
That only I can do
