LOVE PEACE AND CHICKEN GREESE <3

NEVER LET THE FEAR OF STRIKNIG OUT KEEP YOU FROM PLAYING THE GAME.
Pain is weekness levaving ones body.
I'm not random you just cant think as fast as me.


The letter came today,
The one no one wants to come to their door.
Now you only have one place to stay,
As I read this letter I hit the floor.

Now I go tell our son,
Why his hero wont be coming home.
I don’t think the crying will ever be done.
‘Cuz in heaven you now roam.

As I pack up your things,
I smile and think,
You finally have your wings
But I’m missing a link.

Being happy is now simple,
Knowing that I will see you again.
But then I get to thinking,
I don’t like not knowing when.

It will be my time soon,
I will be going to see you.

My step dad is in the army and I just could not imagine if the letter came that told us he dies.

I love tihs... one of my friends just enlisted and I love the positive message at the end! If you could take a look at my poem that would be great!

This is a really cool topic, and surprisingly positive! I love the ideas you're working with, but I feel like it could be cleaned up to be a bit more snappy. I do love the rhyme and message though. Very good. If you have time, take a look at some of my stuff. :)
