"I'm Wearing My Dog Tags Again"

I’m wearing my dog tags again these days,
and some folks are asking me why.
Though I’m not sure why I would want to respond,
I’ll write a few words just to try.

I’m wearing my dog tags to give me some strength,
Just like when I was still young.
I won’t expound on my reasons at length,
let’s just say they make me feel strong.

It’s like wearing a piece of who I once was,
and a taste of all that I've seen.
I have a feeling, that in days to come,
those days will all become dreams.

I've been wearing my dog tags to show that I've not,
always been the wreck you might see.
And when my time comes, I hope that you've got,
the sense to see which one was me.
