Bring It Home

Awake and
rise in the
action of every day.

The shield
that surrounds,
that protects,

the shield
that is all
over you now.

Don’t ignore.
Don’t hate.
Don’t dispose.

Field is
a many battles
where one can or
one cannot survive.

Shall everyone
may see, may know,
may understand the
endless agony of
your flesh, of
your bones, and
bring it home,
bring it home.
