You Make Me Proud - Poem by Tracy Rollings

Spit shine the boots
they dress in green
load up their rifles
taught to be mean.

Their orders are waiting
sent to the field
they protect there country
been trained to kill.

They stand their post
both day and night
no matter the cost
always ready to fight.

Big price to pay
their lives on the line
saving a lot of others
like yours and mine.

Get very little sleep
go to work everyday
we can have freedom
watch our kids play.

Leave their families alone
make sure we're safe
stand there own ground
and keep there faith.

Heres to the boys
that do it everyday
who take flying bullets
or get blown away.

You make me proud
an honor to say
you'll in my prayers
even though your away.
