For Veterans Day

GuyanaJournal, November 2016

On Being A Veteran

Being a Veteran means

Sacrificing your life for the lives of others

Being a hero for a country that needs one

Fighting for others and their rights

Working hard until the battle’s done

Being free means

Having the right to decide what you believe

Choosing the job you please

Having the ability to express your ideas

And doing these things without tease

Being thankful for your service means

Thanking you for your service

Respecting you always

Saying the Pledge of Allegiance

And knowing what you sacrificed all those days
