More ready than he used to be.
His heart beats as he wills it to.
His orders determine the rhythm of his breathing.
A soldier ready to do what only he can do.
To a place I would never.
His feet march in harmony with his brothers.
His motivation: to do the job.
A force that cannot define "defeat".
His eyes see for him and his partners.
His hands are quick and precise.
A weapon total and confident.
Much different than he used to be.
His mind holds images that haunt.
His body has been forever changed.
A man-machine trained extensively/exclusively.
More eagerly than he used to be.
His heart beats much faster than it used to.
His orders- (he wonders about)-but he can't!
A solder fighting his own personal battle.
To a place of restoration.
His feet lead him to the only Place.
His motivation: Perfect Peace.
A force that has no strength.
A Savior Mighty (yet humble).
Who has fought a greater battle than he.
Who is the Warrior of warriors.
The true Undefeated-for the Marine.
So different than he used to be.
His mind in God's Perfect Peace.
His body the temple of the Holy Ghost.
His God: the Hero for the Marine.
