I remember dead soldiers.
Marines, the Army, and Sailors,
the Air Force eagles in the air!
Yes, many shattered lives,
like pure crystal broken glass,
thousands of pieces glittering,
and utterly disassembled!
Will the pieces become one again?
So many falling comrades that-
their numbers are embarrassing!
They waddle in the mire, murk, and mud.
Thrrough miles or rice paddies and booby traps.
In their watery sepulchers,
in a war that nobody wins!
We thought we were heros,
but were treated like the enemy,
by our fellow Americans!
A conflict not of our chosing.
In a war that some people want,
also the war that nobody wins,
in a war as you see dont' end!
I could see the disdain in their eyes,
baby killers where chants and cries,
and shamed to be a sailor!
Yes, I remember back ;in the day,
I have learned how to forgive you!
Happy Memorial Day and God
