You are eager for a chance to fight,
Please treat your life with caution,
Wars are not fought with just bravery,
Please be wise and safe from harm.
People like you who care,
Should not be oppressed meaninglessly,
Please do not fight the ugly battle,
Battle it together and with care.
I know this not from experience,
I know this because I am a coward,
I fear danger and threats,
And I fear for you too.
This will be a tough battle,
And to you who I care for,
Please fight the careful battle,
But let’s fight all the same.
