This is a poem i wrote with the honor and respect of having friends and family in the marine corps. i know it may not be the best but it has been my favorite.
People doubt us.
They think we're all the same.
We fight to protect their freedom,
Yet all they do is criticize our decisions.
Every day we see our brothers die,
One by one.
But facing reality is the real challenge.
To go back home and live again
Is a thought too hard to face.
But the truth is,
We will never be sane.
When you live your life as a Jarhead,
Nothing will ever be the same.
