I Will Bleed

I Will Bleed

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

I will bleed for those I love

taking a bullet or knife.

I will not bleed for just myself.

 

I will bleed for the poor

to enrich their lives.

I will not bleed to make you rich.

 

I will bleed for honor

if it is in question.

I will not bleed for foolish pride.

 

I will bleed for humanity

when it cries out.

I will not bleed to prove I’m human.

 

I will bleed for you

even if in return

your blood runs cold for me.

This is virtually an oath of allegiance, it displays unselfishness and loyalty in a very powerful yet straightforward way. Then, the reader reaches those final three lines and knows that what came before is leading up to the deep feelings of: 'I will bleed for you / even if in return / your blood runs cold for me'

It's a mix of sadness and strength. Thank you for sharing this post.

Thank you so much Marie.
This has a lot to say about standing up for what you believe in and the values that are worth standing up for, and also has that element of unselfishness in the last stanza. Superb!

Thank you so much Jennie, this is who I strive to be, sometimes I slip but I get back up.
This piece had such a beautiful meaning behind it :) Knowing that some will do whatever they can to take the pain and problems for others. Who care more about those around them instead of just themselves. This proves that no matter what, this type of person is truly reliable, honest and down to earth.

Thank you so much sweet Rose xo
It's an interesting thought. We have a limited blood supply, I often wonder, do we share it wisely...what is the motive? And...do we hope to get something in return? I hope so...otherwise some of us would be in need of a blood donor.
