Can I sit idle?
Perched on a cloud forever?
The image bores me.
I pray the answer is no.
With God’s permission,
tempered with perseverance,
I would wander width
and breadth of His creation.
I pray the answer is yes.

Otherwise do not come back
My dad’s brief goodbye
Desert sands absorb our youth
Victory is stained dark red

What is yours is not
The sands shift under your feet
Pushed aside again
Empires trampled your past
The Greeks made you like the dogs
and the Pharaoh’s toy
Caliphates and Crusaders
Then the Ottoman
The crowns of Europe betray
You are Palestine
The ghosts of the past haunt you
Violence holds you hostage

Twelve to Libya! Why twelve?
Check out this link for what I believe the answer is: http://www.goarmy.com/special-forces/team-members.html
Twelve is such a coincidental number of soldiers to send to assist with the cleanup and construction details apparently required for the American Embassy in the war-torn country of Lybia.
And the way it came across was,
Hey we decided to send some dudes to like paint the walls and you know. Fix all the stuff that was like, vandalized, like. Ya.
One more thing, we have already sent four to
“…assist the State Department in Tripoli.”
“For operational purposes each of the two Task Units are usually split into around eight teams, each comprising of 4 men.”

Who inspires me?
Not the politician
Don’t get me started
They just raise my blood pressure
Not the movie star
That is not reality
Ones that make a difference
These are who inspire me
Without even knowing it
