Soldiers Dream

The little boy watches early morning cartoons. A commercial comes on, 'U.S Army, We Want You." The boy than drops evreything than ran. He runs to his mom he wants to be that man. with jelly beans in hand he watches in awe, he watches that man not seeing a flaw. The boy grows up never forgetting that day, with the jelly beans in hand and a voice that would say.."U.S Army, We Want You." no other words need exist. he goes for his gold and he tightens his fists. At last hes in battle, a true true man. But whats in his pocket? But his jelly bean friends. That boy then grows older, no longer can fight. He still remembers that very first sight. "U.S Army, We Want You." said Uncle Sam. At the moment, the boy turned into a man.

Very timely subject matter and an issue that is very relevant in a young man's life today.We need more feeling,concerned and expressive youth as the author of this piece.
