Read veterans day Poems Online



i wittnessed a war just yesterday,
being the reason for much dismay,
i'm sorry for all the death and blood,
and all the soldiers in the mud,
i wish i could stop it just can't be done,
i'll need everybody including a nun,
i'll need jesus to forgive our sins,
that knock us down like bowling pins,
i'll need everybody to read this poem,
in hopes that all the soldiers get back home.

    Hi Jeffery, this powerful piece struck a chord with me especially since I have a son who is a soldier. Please take a look at my piece called "Tribute to Jayson My Brave Warrior." I love your well-penned write! A warm welcome to PoetrySoup and happy writings! Pandita
