Modern Centurion

God watch over me now,

as my enemy fights from within,

the faces of woman and children,

he hides behind my fear of sin,

from inside the buildings,

to outside on the streets,

he fights me from the inside,

draped in the summer heat,

one by one my brothers fall,

fighting a force we cannot see,

God grant me the serenity

to become what i truly must be,

I ask for your forgiveness,

if this is not what you wish for me to do,

all i hope for is that these actions,

are through the hopes of you,
