    I Am A Female Soldier

    I Am A Beacon

    I am a beacon when all other lights go out. I am an angel in a hellish waste land. I am a sheep dog keeping the wolves at bay. I stand on guard ready to throw myself into the fight. I am a hero when I am needed and forgotten by many when I am not. I am hope, I AM A SOLDIER.
