Carry On

I travel across the tainted sea,
And see the world in front of me.
I see the death, the pain and fright,
And watch those hearts then set alight.
I walk among the troubled men,
I carry on, again and again.
I cry my hurt upon my dress,
Then stand up tall, rebuild my nest.
I scan those close, I scan those far,
I hold my head and start my car.
I see the dark, I see the fall,
I hear two voices yet summon one call.
I travel across the snowy ground,
My achievements making my chest pound.
I see the death, the pain and fright,
I start again, my wings take flight.
