Our True Patriots


Some say war is for our Country

Other might claim war conspiracy

We may have our troops

We may have our military

But you can’t complain

Only one group can complain

The mothers and families waiting for their boys to come back home

Some Mothers get their kids back

And act like they never left

Unfortunately that’s not how all stories end

With tears on their cheeks and a knot in their gut

Some Mothers may lose their boys

Those are the souls that are pure as can be

When you see her at her child’s grave

You’ll see a very beautiful sentiment

There she sets down the new flower set

As she moves to pull up surrounding weeds

At that moment you see

A true patriot’s grief
