Soldier Afterall

Ben, I’ve been absent … of late. Hoping to reengage soon. The lyrics to the song, “Soldier  Afterall” by John Gorka have been ringing in my ears and in particular the notion of fighting on despite difficulties especially resonates these days. Perhaps others can relate…

Take and give care,

Grant

Maybe I won’t make much of a difference
And all I do won’t make a hill of beans
I can’t bestow riches on my children
Unless I can show what love and kindness mean

If you believe what’s right is right
Then you will always have to fight
I guess I am a soldier after all
I guess I am a soldier after all

So I go to work every morning
Knowing I will never have it made
Some months I go paycheck to pawnshop
I wish I could say at least then the bills are paid

It takes care to keep what you hold precious
There isn’t much of which you can be sure
And if you want some changes for the better
Then you will have to fight even more

‘Cause it’s a world
Where you’re still judged by your cover
The money you don’t make, your skin, your lover
Your lover

So maybe I won’t make much of a difference
But that doesn’t mean that I’m not gonna try
Cause every day you love someone is better
And I’m not gonna let that chance pass me by

No I’m not gonna let that chance pass me by

If you believe what’s right
Then you will always have to fight
I guess I am a soldier after all
I guess I am a soldier after all
