Shield Sibs to Shield Mates

byJTQuinton©

Long ago we stood back to back defending our beliefs,
Everything else we set aside to guarantee things went right.
Wants and needs never mattered to us,
It was the fight that must be won.

Years passed, choices were made,
Things went both right and wrong.
Wants and needs never mattered to us,
It was the fight that must be won.

Again and again our paths crossed,
Fight after fight we stood back to back.
Wants and needs never mattered to us,
It was the fight that must be won.

At last all the players were there,
Back to back, side to side, sword to sword.
Wants and needs never mattered to us,
It was the fight that must be won.

The final fight, the final battle…
Blood was shed and lives were lost
It was the fight that was won.
