I heard this phrase “One sided love” in reference to a soldier and it stayed with me. It bears a deep meaning for the love is never reciprocated.

Cold dry nights and long thirsty days

Hypocrisy of thoughts, disappearing with the waves

Time is up, for the celebration of privilege

Here I stand alone, alone on the edge

Stranger is my foe

and my own likewise and so

Never learnt to divide or differentiate basis that

Every malice from within I happily let go

I fight by choice and I fight hard

Deep within are embedded,

My trophies, my scars

Looking back has never been an option for me

Trust on my training and instincts

Rest I actually need not worry

But yet people question

my actions, my intent

Proof of my sacrifice

Will make them content

I wonder and I stumble

every time I see the patriotism

On the streets, in their voice

In every judgement and choice

Respect, honor, valor and wisdom

Butt to muzzle in service of thee

A one-sided affair is all I have

Red is my land and red is my sea.
