into the trenches

no place that we have made our own
for hours or days or months or years
has been worth a shrug or even tears
as each time we head to the unknown
onto what vehicles we bags have thrown
doesn't seem to matter beyond all fears
wherever we go we bring all of our cares
and duty has its seat upon the throne
now this is a different and a sharper turn
what we do will matter a long road
so we go with step both calm and wary
the things we get will be ones that we earn
the burdens those we choose to load
and that's both wonderful and scary
