The Life of a Soldier

by pharp

"The Life of a............" Contest Winner 

The life of a soldier...he gives his all

Eager and ready to honor the call

Soldiers in combat are willing to die

Families distress as the days go by

The life of a soldier... from tour to tour

Life disconcerting tears begin to pour

The life of a soldier...returning home

Fighting to fit in - as memories roam

The life of a soldier...feeling alone

Many forgotten, on the streets unknown
Being a homeless vets, is ~ground zero~

A fate undeserving for brave heroes

A soldier's life - being displaced a threat

As a nation, we must care for our vets ~
