Change unexpected;
Difficult to absorb.
My honor at stake.
You look at me;
Differently.

Staring over the edge;
So close, so close.
Cannot do what I did;
Did before the storm.
Can't you see me;
Like the others?

Take one step back;
I feel me again!
Beyond my limit?
I have no limits!
Am so much more
Than before.

So push me;
Pull me, scratch me;
Shake me. I am a Soldier!
Beyond my limit.
My limits are no more.

I am NOT broken!
You CANNOT break me.
I have NO LIMITS.
