ABCW: Patriotism

She wears no uniform
She has no rank
She doesn't know to use no guns
She doesn't know any exercises

But, she feels every move of her man
She knows every name of the weapon he uses
She knows what rank he is in
She adorns a silent uniform
PC: Pintrest

While he is there fearless
She silently fears & prays

While he protects his country
She protects his heart & his family

Her man sacrifices himself for the country
So does she

Away he is from his family
Away she is from her love

He comes home, and summoned again
With tears she bids Goodbye
Not knowing when she would see him again
Hope she has & faith in Him

She hugs herself, She dries her own tears
She never shows him, that she misses him
For she knows, he would worry
She is his weakness, but stands as his strength

He gets praises & salutes
But, isn't she the true patriot, and deserves a salute?

  1. Warfare is the worst thing humanity can do. There are no winners only losers. It destroys family life, places to live and all the beauties on earth. Nevertheless your poem is beautiful.
