You cannot leave this place without getting a badge
Though it may be small, medium, or large
It is that symbol of the battle you so valiantly fought
The battle you never forgot.
The battle between sickness and health
Highlighting the various ravages your body has been dealt
The battle between life and death
A recurring story upon the earth.
The battle field is strewn with all kinds of matter
Blood and various fluids all flow freely after
However through all these the badge stays on
Through all these the badge stays strong.
At the end of the battle the badge is removed
You either walk out of the field or you are removed
All that remains is a memory of where the badge had been
A wish not to again go through what the eyes have seen.
