Happy days filled with laughter
A time gone by, there was disaster
Crawling, dragging across the floor,
Not me, not now, not anymore
Squeals of delight as freedom calls
No longer chained in hazardous walls
Normal life no bombs no blasts
It’s not my job, it’s in my past
I watch the world in civy street
Normal faces i come to meet.
Walking, driving, dashing around
I keep my feet firmly on the ground
An accidental shove or push
I feel the blood through my veins, rush
Its all ok, just stay calm
No need to fret, there is no harm
Hurry, I rush back to my beauty
No more orders, no more duty
What now for me, when all is done?
No more use for a grenade or gun
What will I hold in these hands of mine?
A different peace, more simple and kind.
A soldier I was, driven by orders
Peace or power, protect our borders
Now I am but another man
Where do I belong, in no mans land?
The screams the crys the shrieks the laughs
They’re jumbled up, and crossing paths
Happy, sad, content or sorrow
Ive no idea how i’ll face tomorrow
Ive walked away from that hazardous time
Now to tell my traumatic mind
Its ok now, it is all in the past
But memories like that, are made to last
