He Stands Alone

by_Lynn_©

One with the shadows
His world ominous and dark
Concealing his name
Hidden
Swallowed up in a crowd

Uncertain who he really is
No one to ask
Secret files that never existed
He stands alone
Camouflaged
In a world bursting with color

Duty to Country first
All else pales, even himself
Bound by honor
Years given to protect
Hardened to solitude
A warrior among them all

Inside, buried under the power
Lies a wounded soul
Afraid to leave his world
Crying out in the darkness
A ray of light, healing him
His heart belongs to her
