Casualties

By Daniel Allen, Air Force

Writing Type: Poem

By Daniel Allen
--Port Richey, FL

For war has no "true' winners, 
Only the brave survivors.
Victory can be bittersweet,
As civilians also lay in defeat.

Pain is felt when we see the wounded and dead,
For the hurt at each home is also ahead.
Many are touched with each shattered life;
We give our support in times of strife.

Many have laid down their lives for others, 
Ensuring our freedom and that of our brothers. 
Arlington Cemetery is full of these sacrifices, 
But service of our country usually surfaces.

We came together from around the world, 
Offering our skills as our flag was unfurled.
Our lives at home may have been put on hold, 
But we came to heal the wounds of our bold.

We always prepare for the very worst, 
To be at our best for combat's first.
For freedom and justice are not cheap, 
But thank God the numbers weren't steep.
