Your Leaving Im Changing
The life we chose is not the life we dream about, We make mistakes, We Love, We Cry we say Goodbye but when you marry someone in the military you marry that life. You see the benefits but not the struggle you see the patience but not the pain. Your identity changed no longer are you just a wife or a person you become an in my case an Army Wife and all that comes along with that. It all seems like a dream not the dream you dreamed about but a much better dream where the reality of your husband serving his country you become proud and filled with security and pride and stability at least that is what is seen on the outside then that dreadful day comes and he is being deployed 12 months your dreams stop and now the reality of raising the kids alone and having to explain why you know what its like to be a single parent playing the role explaning to your children how come daddy isnt home. The fear of not knowing is fear its self. Hostage to your home so you don't miss him calling on the phone. Holidays and Birthdays are no exception The Mission must come first after 12 long months then they send us to a class on all the things not to do and how to live together again. What people don't realize is that 12 months aways not even a class can stop us from changing the kids have grown they come to terms with life without daddy you learned new hobbies to keep your occupied you have even learned how not to cry when you see soldiers walk by. We cant stop change we can only evolve and grow when he finally comes home the year we have spent apart no one see the damange it does to a marriage the strain the lonliness the need the commitment we are consumed with making up for time lost its already gone the damange is done they dont give us a class on how to fix only a manual on how to cope. He is leaving and I am changing My love for him is Growing but the strain is destroying, but some we are dealing the struggle we are bearing yet He is Leaving and I am Changing.

FLUSH! by Tom Kitt

Flush! takes you on a poetic journey that touches many areas of human experience. But, in spite of the diversity the poems have a common resonance or theme that is ancient and agel..
