Dear Mother

It’s finally done!!

After four years

The mud, blood, and tears have stopped

I cannot wait to get home.

I have lost a lot along the way

Friends, Comrades, Sanity

All for supposed “glory”

I’m lucky to still be alive.

No one won this.

It just created more problems down the road

But that’s all behind me now


Was the fighting all for nothing?

Everyone who died in vain?

Is this just one graveyard for another?

I died for nothing.

Now there is nothing left.
