Rookie (Living in my reality / Dying in the world)

Paid In Full - Poem by C.R. Ebowski

There are wars that are to be won
And there are wars to be lost
There are lives to be saved
And there are lives to be lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are victories that are deserved
And even in those wins, something is lost
There are deaths that are deemed necessary
Despite that, their honor is never lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are people that do not agree
And believe that the world is lost
There are others that say it’s saved
Only if the doubt and negativity are lost
But mine will come at a higher cost

There are soldiers that believe in a cause
And believe that American values are not lost
There are my bothers that fight on the line
And there are the brave ones that we have lost
It is those who have paid the higher cost

    God bless them....I wrote a letter to Rosie O' Fat and Don Imus telling them to shut up or put up....If they support the troops but hate the war then do a USO show in Iraq for the troops......I know, you think it is a trick and I am hoping that someone would shoot them..... (Report)Reply
