The day before I deployed to Iraq

Through all my time in life,
I have not known love.
Through all the trials and strife,
I sense no help from above.

I turn my back on Him,
I turn my gaze from them.
I lose my friends on a whim,
I lose the love, the gem.

I burned my bridges to ashes,
I brushed my footsteps behind me,
I cannot turn back to the passage,
No going where I want to be.

I am alone in this hate,
My scars have to heal on their own,
I have chosen my fate,
My fate, to finish alone.
