“ happy Veterans Day = DEMOCRACY ” – every day poetry 29

” happy Veterans Day = DEMOCRACY ”

Oooohhh Rrrraaaggghhh!!! Semper Fi

how many times people asked me why

in the integrity of who we are

Marines to the Corps

should U like to know more!!!???

democracy is not free

this explains it best

from wars popular

to wars unpopular and unknown

the situations one is in

typically with a team

could eventually be alone

to all the hell and pain

the strain of life not coming twice

though eyes open

a ghost before U

once lived

now dead in the memories of atrocities not easily fixed

time and time again – brain fixed in triggers never contained

only realigned – if good therapy attained

battlegrounds shifting from one country to another

from one city to another

from one block to another

giving up on trying to fight the inevitable returns

beating me time and time again

to a place where i can’t win

wished and wishing not to be

for all the hell that constantly is plaguing me

so yes, brothers and sisters

some have given all

some have given this and that limbs, and other body parts

and mental injuries follow… and mental injuries alone

this our gift to democracy

this our love for country

yes some of us were and are poor

yes we would

to give it all once more

for idea and principal

they never go astray

so we too do our best to fix these injuries

some suffered, some not apparent and some maybe not at all

we are all different peoples

as we are all different people

experiences shaping the soul differently indeed

so here we now trying for most healthy

in our continuing to give to civlity

our continued efforts for democracy

to stand up in the middle of our call

tell the happenings in education to change our world

share our art and poetry in artistic touching interactions

in a


Peace and Love to all my brothers and sisters in all Branches of those who serve – and all civilians who serve for the efforts of democracy, creating civility through fairness, eradicating of racism and undue prejudices (i say this as we aim to gain our clean environments and wish to have the best world to live in {no more pollution – is all i am saying and working on for one}

Though i was not in Iraq or Iran (nor any popular war) i have held it in, that which i was exposed to, whether some will or will not consider it a war, i know it is, was, and must be addressed. i shall write it out and hope to get it published and hopefully it will be an educational tool to change the world for better democracy… until then, i give U poetry and art.

peace and love

rainy day in july
