Jennifer my hero

when i was very little
i didnt have a hero
there were few i looked up to
infact there were zero
i dtarted to see the world
for what it really was
i saw the twin towers fall
terorists didnt have a good cause
then i saw people on tv
they were dressed in camo suites
they were called soldiers
the freedom recruits
i never thought id know one
but one day when i got home
i met a soldier named Jennifer
a hero of my very own
my hero desearves many thanks
she is a person i will look up to
and respect all my life
Jennifer i love you
im free because you chose to fight
