Soldiers We Will Be

Once we were such pretty girls

Dressed in fashions and curly curls.

Look at us now in our green fatigues

Hair pulled back with no gloss or sheen.


It’s been days since we’ve showered,

Days since we’ve slept,

We’re in the army now where we’re

learning how to sweat.


From four in the morning until

‘niner’ in the eve,

We are forever busy with

intensive training.


“Are we going to make it?” we

ask of one another.

“We will if we fight and if

we work together;

Soldiers we will be.”
