ramblings and things

923,696 poems read


You tell me you understand



And you so obviously care



But to really understand



You had to be there, 



Had to feel the tension 



Of a reccee patrol



Walk in our boots,



Understand our role,



Visit the places



To which we have been,



Experience the horror



Of the things we have seen.



In the middle of this tension,



In the middle of this strife



 The real possibility



Of a mate losing his life.



The feeling of panic



Just recalling that noise



The fear of failing



And letting down the boys.



You say you understand



But I don't think you can



Unless you've witnessed



Mans' inhumanity to man.



So we stick together,



Help each other through



The flash backs and the crises,



Becase thats just what we do.



 So thank you for your help.



Thank you for trying,



But you really can't understand



Why so many of us are crying.
