Once More Unto the Breach

Am I here again?

Will the peace descend

To reveal another war,

Another bloody shore?

Will I stand and fight,

Or hide from Your sight

Every secret You always knew?

Will I sing Your truth

Or burn my lies?

My smoke-filled skies

Cover the light of victory.

Will I find a bit of bravery

To announce Your deeds?

How many will bleed

For my cowardice?

Battle’s early mists

Can no longer thrill.

Even if I lose, even if I’m killed,

I cannot be destroyed

Or discarded to the void

To suffer any more.

I’ve fought here before,

And You raised my bones.

So I’ll stand for my only home,

The unseen kingdom.
