He leaves his home and loved ones

October 26, 2007
He leaves his home and loved ones
to fight for people he's never met.
He leaves his life behind
to sacrifice it for the sake of strangers in a Pyrrhic war.
His battle-buddy becomes his family
His boots become his comfort
His gun becomes his strength, and
the barracks become his home;
while his Mother wakes from dreams of explosions,
his Brother sleeps in his bed to remember him,
his Friends write letters that are never
or Replied To, and
his Girl can't sleep for her worry.
We just want him to come home
we want him back
before he forgets us
for this Pyrrhic war
that took him away.
