Invisible Boundaries

Walking the tiresome journey

Through the drudgery of servitude

Sipping the bitter drink

Of the day to day to day

Breaking the back of the wishbone

Watching the dream fade to fog and uncertainty

The honor hidden in the realm of a noble past

The warrior confidence pulsing through the artery

Feeding the center of compassion

In the dust of the battle

Becoming a mystery,

A glimpse of a second sight

Of something delicate falling through

A crack in a colorful prism

Through a brilliant portal in time

Landing at our feet,

Overcoming the feat

Fighting on, wearing the armor,

Toughening our skin

Layer by layer by layer

Plodding forward in the duty and the honor

That continually keeps us from the glory
