he Marine’s have a slogan:
“The Chosen, the Few”
that works, I think for some men I know
Strong are they,
fitting a term ‘man up’
they face life’s highway
storms and all
and keep going forward
This being earth
challenges come surely
as sun rises, sun sets
but, no matter,
these guys go
Yet they are tender
kindness in action
and tears come
It’s okay
Jesus wept
Oh how that lifts us
that ‘arms around us’ moment
when what is in a man’s heart
flows out in tenderness
A chorus comes to mind:
“He touched me,
oh, He touched me.
And oh the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened, and now I know,
He touched me…
and made me…whole!”
