A slightly different picture than Warriors...

~Come Back~

A magazine...

With pretty women in it!

A bag of M&N's! You know!

The one's with the nuts!

A message from a pretty girl In that other world

That isn't part of this Hell...

We ask so little

God Only knows what we give up....

Oh Shit! Oh God!



There was a time in my life

When I would have never known

What incoming


Rapid lanes of approach

Dead zones

We've got MANY DOWN!


I'm here and my legs there?


"I know if I run out in the open

They can shoot me too, but fuck it!!!"



I come back...

And I guess I missed the parade...

I come back...

To a world...

That has moved on...

Without me...

I come back...

And instead of being greeted...


Try to pick up the pieces...

I come back...

And there are some...

Who hate me...

I come back...

With memories of those...

Who didn't...

Come back...

Chase, I can only wonder what it must be like to be in a war (besides those we have in our own communities), and return with those thoughts, feelings, dreams. That's what my poem "Repaid" was about. I can't imagine myself. I have the most respect for you guys (and gals) in uniform. Thanks for fighting for us. I am from Jena, LA, and we are having our own civil war right now. It's sad but probably long overdue. I hope everyone emerges from this as better, not bitter, people with stronger values and ethics, and especially with more respect for one another. We are NOT ALL bad people. Racism does exist here but not to the extent the media would have people believe. Please pray for our community that our healing can begin soon and that our children, black and white and any other race, will learn from this experience and move forward in a positive way, with their heads up and look to the future with a positive attitude. Thanks man. I enjoyed your work. Jean

Touching. You commented on one of my post, thought I would drop by to see what you're all about. Deep. Full of Life. Fun. A man of experiences, keeping it light.

Thank you for stopping by. Will visit again.

Thank you for this evolving perspective on what it means to live life in contrasting states of innocence and violence. Particularly moved by your depiction of the physical violence that comes with physical war, and the emotional violence not always so apparent, that often comes with the silent rejections and shames that follow participation in war. Exceptional poem.

Reviewed by Sandie May Angel-Joyce 8/30/2007
This was a very emotional song, sung on behalf of all the soldiers. Yes, even when some do come back to a world that has moved on without them, they often feel strange and misfit, like they are being misplaced into a world where they're no longer part of it.

Your song describes these feelings so well.
