Do I? By Christine Swiderski
Do I ?
Do I answer the call?
Do I give my all?
Do I stand in the gap?
Even when the call is obscured?
Even when the call is unpopular?
Even when I am demonized?
Do I stand my ground?
Do I risk my life?
Do I pray?
Even when the stand is unpopular?
Even when the risk is my life?
Even when I pray and the answer isn’t Popular?
60’s we were cursed!
Later there was a new verse.
What will today bring?
The Commander and chief is smeared!
Other chiefs scurrying for cover.
I am called to stand in the gap!
Integrity does not adhere to hoax
Popularity is not a jump from a bridge
I stand in the gap!
I am a Marine!
I am Army
I am Air force!
I am Navy!
I am your gap!
I uphold the values!
Your hearts may waver, I won’t!
