Back Home From War, But Barely Alive, 20 lines
(continued from above) The poem closes: "Oh, if someone cared, Oh, if someone knew, Oh, if someone dared, To carry me through." Though these brave veterans are some of America's best, the brutal images of war can easily cripple their emotions. Wounded in the mind, soldiers coming home need time to readjust. They need and appreciate words of gratitude, encouragement, and kindness. Take time to say thanks! We salute our brave military!
