Not My Own.
I thought I was a soldier going for training in invasions,
Now I've been ordered to kill my brother.
I don't want to kill my brother,
But if I don't,
They'll kill my family.
It's just orders,
Or so they say.
Can I be held accountable if my actions don't stem from a conscious decision?
Or am I just as bad as my enemy,
Because I don't want to risk a threat that could cost me everything.
Maybe I am less of a man,
Or maybe I'm a man with a bleeding heart.
I have a wife, a daughter, a son, another daughter,
Is it so horrible that I wish to see them again?
That I'll do whatever I can to make sure they live,
So I can come home to them.
But now I am killing my brother.
What would my mother say?
They aren't my orders,
So are they really my actions?
