I signed my name on a dotted line,
a blank check for the nation.
My brothers’ and sisters’ freedoms as payment.
As a soldier I’m trained to scale walls and fight tyranny.
My blood, sweat and tears grease the Gates of Liberty.
Lay cover fire down for family,
that make a home for brothers and sisters who flee.
I don’t lay bricks or write laws
but if we let the nationless lay at a wall then liberty will surely die.
Fear is a suggestion that every soldier fights
yet it gives terrorists advice.
This is why freedom needs to ring not fall on deported nights.
I signed my name
this blank check for families fleeing from tyranny.
