"My Soldier Decision"

My sweaty finger is on the trigger, but hesitation drips through my mind!
If I pull this trigger on the battlefeld today, will I be a hero by tomorrow?
My soldier decision is tough; I must make it accurately and quickly!
Confusing thoughts, confusing words, what a confusing world!
I don't know where to go, I don't know what to do, or who to turn to!
Just when I thought I was lost, I picked up a little black book and I was found!
My solider decision is made. I shall not kill today, or even tomorrow!
The consequences are too painful to put into this poem I have written!
