Sometimes It's Hard

Sometimes it’s hard…

When you find yourself lying face-down in a hallway, staring at your reflection in a puddle of your own sweat.

When you have to carry your buddies, even though you doubt you can make if yourself.

When you are asked to push yourself further than you ever dreamed possible. To the point where you dread falling asleep for fear of what the next day brings.

Sometimes it’s hard…

When you’ve slept in the sand and wore the same utilities for two monhs.

When you stare into a crowd knowing that at least one person wants to kill you, and you have no idea who it is.

When every time you drive down a street, you know it might be your last time.

When it’s your buddies’ last time.

Sometimes it’s hard…

When you are betrayed by one of your closest friends for a bag of silver.

When you are beaten to the point where you cannot even be recognized.

When you have to carry your own cross, and suffer a death that is beyond comprehension.

When you did it not for yourself, but for me.

Sometimes…it’s not really as hard as you think it is.
