My Hero

I have a hero who remains unknown
By many of those who dwell in his home
He protected them all, though they forgot him;
Defended the cause, fought only to win.
He gave everything that he had for his love,
For his homeland and ideals therof.
He struggled through heat, he struggled through rain
He lived for great joys, but suffered much pain.
Volunteered bravely, he answered the call;
He faced many fears, and overcame all.
He left his home and family behind,
He sacrificed love and his peace of mind.
He carried our burdens, he covered our shame
Why did all the people forget his name?
Because of him, I strive to be bolder.
The Marines call him: The Unknown Soldier.
