What do you think of these lyrics I wrote? (honest answers/best answer)?

I've been doing poetry for awhile now, so I thought I'd try writing a song. Now I know that you can't hear music while reading this, but bear with me. These lyrics have meaning to me. So please just tell me what you think honestly. Should I make changes? All comments are welcome. Heart of a... show more I've been doing poetry for awhile now, so I thought I'd try writing a song.

Heart of a Soldier:

Everyone's got a point of view
But you always want me to side with you
Through tragedy and misery
No tears I shed, Whats wrong with me?

I've got the heart of a soldier
Cold and hard til it's over
I wont allow myself to feel, I won't allow myself to cry
I'll keep on pushing through it and I'll never question why

People keep expecting me to break
But I've been sleepwalking forever
I dont think I'll ever wake
Armored up everyday to face the things thrown my way
Put on an act, like a play
Until I waste this day away

Cuz I've got the heart of a soldier
Each day colder and colder
I wont let a tear roll down my face,
No I won't be weak
I won't let myself feel the pain
Happiness is what I seek

Maybe if I can convince everyone I'm happy
The lie might seem so true
That maybe I'd believe it too

The heart of a soldier makes me put it all away
Boxing up feelings, not caring what they say
The heart of a soldier helps me make it to another day

Cuz I've got the heart of a soldier
I won't feel sorry for myself
I'll never ask for help
The heart of a soldier.
