OWN EVERYTHING

“Come, get it!”  My action saying

As I held that grenade high.

Enemy down behind those trees,

Waved it, then planted it, too.

.

.

A path they had beaten beneath those trees,

It was a booby trap I had set.

Guards they had planted to watch activities,

To get all they all they could get!

.

.

Knew they were losing and desperate too, to

Save what they still had left

Of their own lives, left of the enemy.

They were hidden below that cleft.

.

.

Cleft in that hill behind those trees,

Of course, I was risking it,

My life!  Left of this sole G. I.

Skin and bones and a beard to fit!

.

.

I knew it was risky but did not care!

Squad Leader, “He is nuts!”

Though quite aware of his respect!

Once heard him tell, ‘he has guts!’

.

.

The 503rd Parachute, Corregidor.  I tried to capture some fame!

Famous they were!  Now, I am part of it!  Sure, I was proud of that name!

How we strutted, once on leave, so proud of that famous name!

Did not bother to salute Officers, jump-boots insignia very same!

.

.

The 503rd, of course, Wake Island!

Glad to be still alive!

Reputation enviable!

Unconscious of unassumed pride!

.

.

We as Christians today are to walk humbly,

Describing the Master’s Walk.

Jump boots insignia, all meaningless

Once part of the Master’s Flock!

.

.

We strive to be like Him!  Not strutting along,

As though we owned everything.

More like the Master, now we would be!

To Him humbly cling!

.

.

We are not brave, facing one to the other,

Life much preferred with Him!

My God, crucified for all!

We live now and then IN HIM!

.

.

That’s forever, Son!

.
