True Heroes

By David Marchant, Air Force

Writing Type: Poem

By David R. Marchant
VA Medical Center--Salt Lake City, UT


The smoke has cleared
,
The battle over and the wall

Finally traversed.
Once again I'm on the other side
,
Weary, but stronger from the fight
.
The warrior in me

Stands victorious
,
Yet ever aware

The battle was not won

Single-handedly. 

There were others

Who fought with me
,
Always at my side,

Never allowing me to give up

While the battle raged

Inside me. 



In my eyes... 

They are the true heroes.

Notes: This is a follow up poem to A Warrior in Me, that I also submitted. This was to recognize those people that reach out to support you when you are struggling and never give up "While the battle raged."
