Silver Star - 9,657 Points (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Crucial Reality


Weakened by devastation, trying to exist,
yet having a difficult time of it.
At times suffocating and praying for air.

Burning deeply set within me, I try to
walk through it, but I can't always manage.

Yet, here I am, still hoping to get through
everything before expiring and leaving this
crucial world of reality.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
