through the glass
As we look through the glass to see the outside
We dont see that are solider dont hide
They stand for there rights and there pride
We have no idea about the living or dead
But the ones who serve are truly ahead
The incoming bullets the pain and misery
There beyond what you see
Look through the glass and see the rear
The families waiting and praying as they fear
Serving there country serving you and me
Without them this wouldn't be
Could you stand tall
As the terrorist want you to fall
They dont asked for anything but they try
To save as even tho they might die
It comes with a price but they no whats right
As they stand tall and try to win this fight
Look through the glass
and tell me do you care
Look through the glass
And see whats beyond it
Look through the glass
And feel ashamed
Look through the glass
feel there pain
Look through the glass
To see are heros

I loved it! It was intense, and described so much, in so little.

Yes, I agree with penname all the way. Once again, wonderful job. Your grammar is a little off sometimes, but that's the only problem I can ever find with any of your works!! ;^))

the "refrain" if you will is superb. I love these limerics... truly meaningful and that makes all the difference in the world too- to have songs that are musically done well, but also the words actually are backed by serious meaning- fulfilling, poignant, some subtle, some not...but all evoke such feeling and has such a cathartic effect on me. wonderful work.
