Two Feet In The Dirt

Two feet in the dirt,feeling what I'm worth,
no time to stress,my head a mess,
trying to breathe,everything smothering me,
one step back,ready to crack,
feeling the pain,no one to blame,
the war that begun,the war wear no one won,
trying to fight back,can't see because it's to black,
feeling it come near,no where to run because it's all clear,
do I move forward,do I move back,
a flash of light,get ready to fight,
sounds of death,a few men left,
put to the test,hope to make it like the rest,
no time to sweat,this flash was closer than the rest,
can't fall down,to proud stand tall,
one more step closer than the rest,
one more step to seeing all the mess,
no need to step back,what is left is lying from my wrath,
two feet in the dirt,seeing a better tomorrow what it's worth.
