I Thought So - Poem by Kate HaldenbyWood
does it sit well with you?
the scars you bear like a cross
the stigmata you wear
to display the sacrifice you'd never make
that has already been made
does it suit your attire?
the trophies you carry always
the heart you wear on your sleeve
to show your good intentions
that are self imagined
does it feel right?
the everyday heros
the fearless warriors sent
to fight for your ignorant ungrateful life
that you worked so hard for
does your life merit acknowledgement?
the days you spend like
the money you dont value
to make yourself more comfortable
that is all you have after all
does your heart go out to
the families of souls lost?
the mindless bodies walking the earth
to try to find a place to fit in
that watched friends shed blood for you
does it not feel like you should show
the compassion this shadow of a man showed
the unfaltering bravery in the face of fear
to come home to a family of strangers
that waited years for daddy to return......
