ToServe and Protect

Is it ones fault to protect themselves from one of who was not invited in?
Is it ones fault to kill in the name of their rights?
To serve and protect so says she,
the nation speaks her words proud and lets them echo through out the earth.
Yet, when a piece of this gracious lady speaks up with these words,
she is neglected the right passage of them.
I swear above all to hear these words as they ring through out this court.
With courage and passion, I set my prescience.
I vow to defend.
I vow to fight.
For the justice of words that shall ring through the night.
To serve and to protect, words of power, words of the brave.
With me at your side and justice prevailing, you shall be set free.
For your so called "man slaughter" charge shall be revoked,
because I fight for justice, fight for your rights.
To serve and protect, especially the ones you love.
For that is justice itself, and can fight on its own.
