He Was Just A Boy


On that fateful day
He was just following orders
Little did he know
How tragic it would be

As a rank and file
How could he reason
Let alone question
His own superiors

When he joined the force
He wished to serve
Only to preserve 
His country's peace

They told him to man up
How tragic that was
For deep inside
His was only a pawn

But who would excuse him
He'll have to live 
With guilty burning within
His crying heart

Yet all eyes are on this boy
How can he pay the ultimate price
Of a young life cut short
His tears can't bring her back

May we all remember
He is just a bullied boy
A reflection of who we are
His pathetic people

Wow. Ok I could have never thought about this side of the story.
