For Our Veterans

They gave it, their all for us
So we can still say this and thus
About what we deserve
But we didn’t serve
Like when they fought and died for us

I really like this. It makes me think of that Foo Fighters song My Hero.

Thanks :)  I write music, too.  Rock, Metal and Rap, mostly.  I haven't sent any in to Teen Ink, yet, but if people like my poems enough, I think I might.  Do you think I should?

Really good. Ijust feel like the top line should be be broken in to two parts or had an extra coma so it read something like. They gave it,  their all, for us.....That's just my thoughts on it. Anyways I think you did the Vets proud.

lol, that was a typo.  I have this saved on my computer, and it has that extra comma in it.  Nice catch, there.

I love it, it doesn't matter how good it is in anybody's mind, it's the thought that counts. Especially to me when I have many relatives and friends who have fought for our freedom in any war throughout history. I'm sorry about your grandpa, I know what it is like to not have a grandparent growing up. Thanks again, and remember, don't worry what other people think, be yourself in everything you do.

Thanks.  My mom never even knew my grandpa- he died when she was six week old when someone in his unit stepped on a land mine.

I know, it doesn't seem to make sense, but it's just that way sometimes- you miss someone so much, even though you never met them.  RIP Jen Talbot...

(Anyone who has read the Shadow Children books will get that...)
