SOMEONE’S SON TOOK MY PLACE
Crowns Of Creation, crownsofcreation.com , © 2014

I was 18 on my way to war
When someone’s son took my place.
Off to college, “2S” deferred.
I never saw the enemy’s face.

Soldier’s standing in my shoes
While I ran barefoot and free.
I didn’t see it clearly then,
Someone’s son rescued me.


I was just a child at 18,
Thinking I knew everything.
When war ended I heard things,
Unimagined sufferings.

They came home to no support,
And no appreciation.
Fighting an unpopular war
No ticker tape. Just alienation.


Marching toward the Eve Of Destruction,
Endless killing season,
Foxholes turning soldiers into saints.

One day I heard about a Son of man.
Obeying orders from High Command.
Gave His life for the human race.
Someone’s Son took my place.
