Hi, I wrote a poem back when my son had just went to Bootcamp. A friend said I should share this with you, and you in turn share with others.Son, Lcpl Shane currently deployed in Iraq
The first trimester has come and gone...
Written By Marine Mom, Marti
The first trimester has come and gone,
the broken man, the man I've become.
My youthful ways has left my skin,
I bring up my armour, the man within.
A Marine I'm learning to be
so you and I can be free.
Onto the mastering of what I have to give and more,
my strength, my endurance, the best I implore.
For the Marines I have pledged my oath,
to give my heart and soul, I give my both.
