I woke up remembering
and stayed there and thought
for the ones who fought
I had missed the silence
and missed the war.
This day always bring mixed feelings
Of course, of sadness, hope, and thanks.
But I feel guilt, cowardice, and shame.
My family has never fought
we hide in this country we’ve never protected.
I hope one day my time will come
To show this nation how much I love it.
To die for our flag..
Then again that’s the point,
We don’t want that to happen.
They don’t want that to happen.
The veterans fought so I wouldn’t have to.
They kept my family safe
And we thank them every year.
But not nearly enough,
We will never be able to show our gratitude
But we will keep trying.
