The Walking Wounded

By Benjamin Williams, Army, Marine Corps

Writing Type: Poem

By Benjamin J. Williams

VA Medical Facility—Biloxi, MS

 

He has problems, big problems

with becoming a civilian once again.
With a metal plate in his skull, he suffers behind his smile.
He tries to find a safe spot where he can stop fighting,

over and over, the war now taking place inside his head.
He has not become bitter or angry,

avoids wrapping himself in self-pity, then lying down

and giving up on the rest of his life.
Instead, he is proud to have served his country,

and now refocuses the direction of his life.

He smiles as he takes the small steps necessary

for him to grab a fair share of the American Dream.

He salutes as "Ole Glory" flies high above.
