I Donít Wanna be a Soldier

By Teresa A. Doxtrod-Lancaster
I donít wanna be a soldier
Who kills without remorse.
I donít wanna be a soldier,
Who sits on a ďhigh-horse.Ē

I donít wanna be a warrior
Who slays all that he sees.
I donít wanna be a warrior;
Itís just not me!

I donít wanna be an actor
Who pretends what he is not.
I donít wanna be an actor
Who lives with a faÁade, unsought.

I donít wanna be a spy
Who plays the game of doubles.
I donít wanna be a spy
Who hides when others are in trouble.

I donít wanna be an assassin
Who kills for naught but cash.
I donít wanna be an assassin
Whose life is no more than trash.

I donít wanna be a healer
Who saves with herbs and plants.
I donít wanna be a healer
Who saves what others canít.

I just wanna be me
Who is all that I am.
I just wanna be me,
The vermin I am.
