Lesson Along The Way
To be old and wise, say what?
Stupid really never fades away.
Better at hiding, then sometimes not.
No longer place blame on youthful play.
Now makes me sit back and reflect.
How at times we are all the same.
No way, no how I can deny regret.
How in youth life were not only a game.
Country called, did not hesitate
Comrades at arms, mess with us big mistake
Lean and mean, marched, proud to serve
Side by side, bravery the enemy observed
Not youth, but man, no game, faced my fate
Now to salute, men and women today
Soldiers all, just as lean and mean, every way
I recall my youth and stupidity past
But proudest of all we kicked some ass
For God and country, will always display
Lest not forget, today America as many other nations face enemies destructive in mind. Barbaric, no value for life in not just one country, but for all who live for peace and prosperity. True meaning of this post is those naive realize from old and wise, how in youth life were not only a game. We must battle the ones who seek death and destruction. Another date in history just before this post published, what do I see. Another act of brutality.
