Photographer's Note

In a land with no borders
Stands a lonely soldier on guard
He is obligated to keeping the peace
And so he stands guard fully committed

As time goes by a thought passes through his head
He suppresses it for a while but boredom keeps it alive
The thought is so good and yet it is so horrible he stamps his feet
A feeling of despair comes over him, the thought took over

In a land with no borders
Stands a lonely soldier on guard
What is he to do if there will be peace
If an army is not needed his time has ended

If there are no borders then no one is after the land he guards
If no one is a fret there is no mission of guarding non existing borders
Looking beyond the borders he understands that his existence is making borders
A feeling of despair come over him, he needs a war to strive for peace

In a land with no borders
Stands a lonely soldier on guard
He is obligated to keeping the peace
And so he stands guard fully committed

This is utopia. A land with no borders.
However, the Internet provides a look into a world like that. Let me tell you that judging by DA - it could work. There is tolerance, support, and understanding. Sure there is hate, but these are stupid soldiers in need of a border to have themselves a definition of what they are fighting for. So let me use this stage to salute all of you international deviantart land Ė Iím proud to be looking beyond the borders with you.
