    Poem Commentary

    I wrote this poem a couple of years back. just a little insight to what makes me tick.



                            Red is the color of bloodshed
                             Blue is the color of tears
                           White is the color of bravery
                           displayed throughout the years

                               So many soldiers fought
                            with honor courage and pride
                            and for their strong beliefs
                               so many soldiers died

                                 I am now a soldier
                                 in a foreign land
                          and for beliefs that i hold true
                               I too will make a stand

                         I'll try to fill their combat boots
                                and keep my eyes upon
                             those beautiful three colors
                              this country was built on

    Very patriotic and true blue. Love the way you incorporate your enlistment and ideals into your writing. Write on......

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
