No complaints

As everyday is different as i walk 
the lands to me that are unknown. 
I fear nothing but it kills me everyday 
inside that i see this. My body 
fills with anger to know that people 
constantly complain about the little things
in life while i call this place home till i can escape. 
i dont get to hear crickets at night and hear the 
night air blow. I hear the helicopters fly above 
dropping bombs to the unknown and shots 
of bullets to those we are fighting for our sources. 
As you get to stop and smell the roses and see 
the beautiful sky when i smell blood, sweat and tears 
from our enemies and my own brothers. 
Dont be upset when you cant find the time to work 
sleep into schedule because i dont even know what that is. 
You complain that your hot and sweaty, feeling dirty. You 
cant bare it anymore. while i live in my uniform that reprsents 
the united states. The sun is unbearable here. Im soaked of sweat
as if i jumped into a pool. I wish i have because i havent took 
a shower in days. Sometimes it a week. 
When your food order isnt right think about me and feel 
lucky that you have atleast something as sometimes 
my stomach growls vicisously for something to scarf down. 
When i return back to the states i can never complain another day 
for what i use to before i witnessed the days that i did here.
