The Veteran Pt. 2: a poem

By PACIFIC ENG

Staff Writer

There was once a brave man who wanted to make his life worthwhile

He had bright, bold blue eyes and a backbone of steel

The man went off the war to serve his country

He left his family and friends, but he knew it was for a better cause

But things were different at the military camp

He wasn’t used to seeing all the unfamiliar faces.

 

But the war had ended, and they had won

When the man came home, no one was there to greet him

They all thought he had died during the war

Now he doesn’t know what to do, the war was his life

The man didn’t know anything but the war

So now, the man sits there on a crate,

Staring at the world with those bright, bold blue eyes.
