America Willing To Serve - Poem by Wesley Steele Deubel

Willing to serve and fight
Willing to risk their lives
They are war torn and jobless
Trained well just not trained for what they will face
Willing to fight in any war from the Revolutionary war to the Iraq war
They have been through gun fire and blood
They have seen the burning and destroyed buildings
They have been through the pain of many friends whom have died fighting with them
They have fought in a war we didn't start and in wars we have
They have served for our country and our families
They love their job and yet their job can hurt them
But in their eye's they see the Red White and Blue still more free then ever
That is why they are willing to serve

    America being a mega power in global scheme of things has continued to sacrifice resources and manpower to foster and further universal brotherhood of man. A nation of free people with solid democratic ideals with spiritual and insightful motto: In God We Trust. America! Always remain blessed. It's a lovely piece of poetry nicely penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing Wesley. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
