Young happy learning free
taken gone alone
boys grow to men
three to war
two beat

He wed before he left
then the dear john came
stayed on to die
but survived
beat up

Returned exeverything
without inner peace
friends not solid
loves fleeting
beat down

Aging long working hard
trying to live right
loving losing
lost it all
beaten

Sad but poignant and true... ...the universal and timeless theme of men gone to war and those who have come back never to be well again. Thank you, Budd. Love and peace,

The story of the Vietnam vet. Very well written. Strikes home to this writer who avoided the whole issue by becoming 1Y and a non-entity all at the same time.

This is a very creative poem about a sad wake-up call. It's a sad way to go - beaten. There has got to be a better way. Amen
