Comments about Ronald Strickland
Silence Of War
Over the jungles filled with war
another mission once more.
Only days away until my tour is done.
My thoughts are shattered if by the
Life flashes by as I descend in the flames
from hell to the jungle’s floor.
The sound's of day and into the night
were the sounds of war.
As life leaves me, I see mother
smiling at heaven’s doors.
The voices I hear, be it friend or foe?
My heart filled with fear.
“You’re okay, ” a voice would say,
“You’re going home; it’s not your day.
Thank you God for letting me ...
I Am There
In my mind i go places that many are not aware,
nor do they know the pain that haunts my soul.
A place where some have never returned,
and may always remain.
The reality of this place, the voices and consistent load ringing in the ears. My eyes filled with tears.
Is the screaming, truly my own!
